What IF…? Online Community Conversations: The Future of Sports and Fitness – the 3rd of 4 sessions.   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 online 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.

This is the 3rd of 4 facilitated discussion sessions online via Zoom, each running from 1:00-2:15 pm EDT.  Please register separately for each session. Each session is independent, so if you are unable to attend one, you can still attend the other sessions. You will be sent a Zoom link the morning of each session. Please register 24 hours before each session starts. Registration for all sessions is free and you can register here for the 3rd session or by clicking on the website listed in the box below.  On the registration page, please make sure to fill out the particular registration form(s) that correspond to the date(s) that you plan to attend.

This 3rd session will focus on Sports and fitness—and a just society?  And ask us to discuss–

  • What role could, or should, sports and fitness have in making us a more just society or for improving our civil society?
  • What economic concerns might surround sports and fitness—and what might be different ways to address those concerns?
  • What questions or concerns about fairness, justice, and equality do you think we might have to address about sports and fitness?

This program is part of the #WeavingCommunity initiative.
