Technology is often blamed for sedentary behavior, including falling participation rates in team sports among children. But technology isn't going away. So how do we use tech as an asset, and reduce the barriers to access to an early positive sports experience? This one-day roundtable convenes 40+ leaders from the realms of technology, business innovation, philanthropy, academia to develop five emerging ideas that could change the game for kids and youth sports, one of the few industries whose model has yet to be disrupted (for the better) by technology. Underwritten by the David & Lucile Packard Foundation and hosted by Google, the roundtable will also consider a couple of special opportunities that could use developing: interval training and connecting low-income kids with sport activities during the summer break.
The event includes a featured talk with Gopi Kallayil, triathlete, Chief Evangelist for Brand Marketing at Google, and host of the television show Change Makers.
