Cultural and Environmental Impacts on South Africa World Cup 2010
Traditions <ul><li>The popular souvenirs for visitors is the Zulu beadwork, certain beads represent different messages such as messages of love, grief, jealousy, poverty, or uncertainty. </li></ul><ul><li>Dancing and singing is part of the lifestyle of the people and each dance symbolizes an event or happening within the clan. </li></ul><ul><li>The South African still follow certain ancient customs such as the brewing of beer, ancestral worship, places of burial the conservative dress code, the healers, witchcraft and superstitions. </li></ul>
Food Potjiekos, literally translated "small pot food", is a stew prepared outdoors in a traditional round, cast iron, three-legged pot. It is the most traditional food din South Africa. However, for the World cup South Africa has been forced to import different cuisines for the various cultures attending the World Cup. This means that the people are not being exposed to the true south Africa food.
Environmental Impacts. <ul><li>Pollution. Africa's first football World Cup will generate 2.75m tonnes of carbon emissions, one of the biggest environmental impacts of any sporting event in history, a study has found. </li></ul><ul><li>But getting there will be the biggest contributor to the total of 2,753,250 tonnes of carbon. </li></ul><ul><li>There is more pollution because of the cars. Factories are also working overtime to supply uniforms for the audience. This all contributes to global warming. </li></ul><ul><li>Sound pollution is widespread because of the vuvuzelas, people think they are too loud and put the players off. Some people think that they should be banned. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Five stadiums that will be used during the 2010 World Cup matches all feature some environmentally-friendly elements. Of these five stadiums, they are each at a different point in their development: only one was remodeled for the event, while two were built brand new. The final two are older stadiums that were in good enough shape for World Cup 2010. The two newly built locations include solar power and have been created with enough flexibility to later be re-used for events other than football, which is really a kind of architectural recycling, if you think about it broadly enough. One of these two newly build soccer stadiums also has a collection system for rainwater (Durban Stadium, Durban). </li></ul>
Cultural impacts. <ul><li>Vuvuzelas are part of South Africa’s culture, FIFA announced that they would push forward on the banning of them and banning it would be considered eroding their culture. </li></ul>
