The Interactivity Foundation presents–What IF…? Online Community Conversations: The Future of Sports and Fitness. A Four-Part Exploratory Conversation Series
Imagine a future without sports and fitness activities. What would the world be like—what would we be missing? A lot of us have been facing up to this during the pandemic, whether it’s sporting activities we can no longer do or sporting activities we can no longer watch. In this series we’ll meet for small-group facilitated conversations to explore what sporting and fitness activities mean to us as a society and as individuals. We’ll think about “sports” broadly, whether recreational activities or hardcore competitions.
Please register for each of the dates separately. Each discussion is independent; if you haven’t attended one, you can still attend subsequent talks. You will be sent a Zoom link the morning of the program. Please register 24 hours before the program is to begin.
November 12, 2020: Sports and Justice
What role could, or should, sports and fitness activities have in making us a more just society? How can we connect sports and social progress? A sense of fair play, of having a level playing field, has always been essential for sports. What if leveling the playing field in society can start by leveling the playing field in sports? The Interactivity Foundation will facilitate an exploratory conversation about these questions and more on November 12, 2020.
