Laureus Summit Day 1 – A look to the future of Sport for Good
October 10, 2016
We’re only one day into the Laureus Sport for Good Summit 2016 in style, but it’s already safe to say the future of the sport for development movement is in safe and ambitious hands.
Project leaders from Laureus-supported projects around the world joined for the first of a three-day Summit and after brief energizing activities, were grouped together in ‘tribes’. Each tribe encouraged networking, communication and relationship-building between the projects Laureus Sport for Good supports around the world.
Throughout morning sessions, project leaders were given the chance to express their thoughts on the sport for development movement, and voice their opinions on where the movement should go from here. Discussing with fellow leaders, attendees gathered thoughts on how sport can do good in the years ahead.
Participants were then given the opportunity to motivate themselves and continue team-building with an informal and fun sporting activities sessions at the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim training facility.
Project leaders were given the chance to act as young people and experience Sport for Good projects move&do, Peace Players International and Girls on the Run New Orleans. The Summit takes place in the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region thanks to the support of the Dietmar Hopp Stiftung (Foundation).
