ROLAND-GARROS CELEBRATES WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY

June 05 2023 - News Release News Editorial

As part of the Roland-Garros tournament's commitment to following an environmentally responsible approach, a number of activities are being organised to mark World Environment Day.

ROLAND-GARROS CELEBRATES WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY

To mark World Environment Day, the Roland-Garros tournament will be putting on a selection of environmentally-themed activities on Monday 5 June. Around the grounds, spectators can take part in a treasure hunt to test their knowledge about environmental issues and the actions undertaken by the tournament. With the quizzes on offer, players, the Roland-Garros tournament organisers and the media will also be involved.

Participants in The Green Game will have the chance to enter into a draw to win two spots for the final of their choice in the 2024 Roland-Garros tournament. What’s more, spectators who have left their bikes or scooters in one of the two free supervised bike parks (available throughout the tournament) will be entitled to a fast pass to enter the stadium on June 5.

Environmentally responsible actions are carried out throughout the tournament. Among these actions, the Roland-Garros tournament is combating food waste with the charity Le Chaînon Manquant. This scheme, which has been up and running since 2014, collected the equivalent of 5,133 meals last year, which were distributed to people living in difficult circumstances.
