This paper discusses the challenges in safely re-opening indoor sport centres and the measures already suggested by others to partly tackle these challenges. It also elaborates three potential additional measures and based on these additional measures, it suggests the concept of a certificate of equivalence that could allow indoor sports centers with such a certificate to re-open safely and more rapidly. It also attempts to stimulate increased preparedness of indoor sports centers that should allow them to remain open safely during potential next waves of SARS-CoV-2 as well as future pandemics. This contributes to SDGs 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 16.

Cement production consumes large amounts of energy. After rice is transported to mills, the husks are removed from the grain. Rice husk ash (RHA) produced in controlled combustion has been found to be a viable replacement for cement and has the potential to produce energy when combusted. This study can support SDGs 7, 9 and 12.
This article addresses goals 7, 9 and 12 proposing an integrated blockchain-based energy management platform that optimizes energy flows in a microgrid whilst implementing a bilateral trading mechanism.
