Imagine a future without sports. What would our world be like? What would we be missing? What does this tell us about the role sports can play in our society? How might it inform our public policies for sports? Check out this version of the Future of Sports and Society discussion guide to see how a group of your fellow citizens grappled with these questions and more as they explored the future of sports and society. In the discussion guide you’ll find seven broad policy possibilities that embrace different societal approaches to the future of sports.
This discussion guide was developed by and for citizens. Our goal is to expand discussions about the future of sports and society and not to sell people on a given policy idea or even a particular set of policy ideas. And we’d love to learn your thoughts about the ideas presented in the guide and to learn about any alternative ideas you have about the future of sports and society. You can contribute ideas and links–
- in a public Facebook group The Future of Sports and Society, or
- tweet your ideas about the future of sports to @PrudhommeJeff, or
- email to prudhomme[at]interactivityfoundation.org. or
- post a comment here in the “Comments” tab below.
Here are the seven policy ideas that were developed by the participants, with links to the full text in the online version:
