A New Partnership with the Aspen Institute Sport & Society Programme

10 December 2020

TAFISA is proud to count on a new partner with the Aspen Institute Sport & Society Programme! Following the approval of the Aspen Institute as a new TAFISA national member for the USA by the TAFISA Board of Directors, TAFISA and the Aspen Institute Sport & Society Programme signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 9 December. This new partnership aims to position the ASPEN Institute Sports & Society Programme as a TAFISA hub for the USA and Northern America to facilitate the development of the Sport for All Movement in the region. A number of joint activities will follow in the coming months and years.

This partnership was officially announced by TAFISA Secretary General Wolfgang Baumann and Aspen Institute Sport and Society Programme’s Executive Director Tom Farrey during the Aspen Institute’s Project Play Summit on 16 October. See video here.

The Aspen Institute is a global non-profit organisation committed to realising a free, just, and equitable society. Since its founding in 1949, the Institute has been driving change through dialogue, leadership, and action to help solve the most critical challenges facing communities in the United States and around the world. The mission of the Sports & Society Programme is to convene leaders, facilitate dialogue, and inspire solutions that help sports serve the public interest. The Programme provides a venue for thought leadership where knowledge can be deepened and breakthrough strategies explored on a range of issues.  Project Play, the main initiative of the Aspen Institute Sports & Society Programme, develops, applies, and shares knowledge that helps stakeholders build healthy communities through sports.
