How and when do sports become a public matter? What public decisions do we face about sports? What roles could sports play for us as a society and as individuals? The Interactivity Foundation is launching a new discussion project in the DC area to explore questions such as these. We’ll explore the different kinds of public concerns we might have about sports, from health and economic concerns, to concerns about morality, education, the media, and more. We’ll discuss the different goals we might have for the future of sports and develop different ways that public policy could move us toward these diverging goals. You’ll find more information at the Future of Sports and Society project page.
This project is currently recruiting discussion panelists in the DC area. One panel will be made up of everyday folks who are simply interested in exploring the different possible futures of sports. The other panel will be made up of specialists who can help the group think about particular aspects of the future of sports and society.
