The Future of Sport: Uniting People With and Without Disabilities Through Inclusive Sports Technology

Wheelchair basketball. Sitting volleyball. Blind soccer. Sled hockey. Do you think of these sports as only for people with a disability? Or can you imagine everyone playing these sports whether having a disability or not?

Will shifts in perception and understanding reveal that these sports are not only for athletes with a disability, but rather offer challenge, excitement, and enjoyment for all athletes? Perhaps the future of sport will unite athletes with and without disabilities in a shared movement of sport that allows everyone to play, participate and compete together on equal terms?

This virtual roundtable conversation on December 3 from
9:00am - 10:00am EST will recognize and celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD), and will explore and discuss this emerging topic. The theme of the 2014 IDPD is Sustainable Development: The Promise of Technology.

Free and open to the public.
