The Aspen Institute will host Kobe Bryant and other sports leaders at the 2018 Project Play Summit on Oct. 16 in Washington, D.C. The nation’s premier gathering of leaders at the intersection of youth, sport and health, the Summit is where stakeholders take measure of and chart the next steps to build healthy kids and communities through sports. This year’s theme, “Think Global, Play Local,” represents the opportunity for U.S. leaders to find inspiration for innovation by sharing breakthrough ideas with international trailblazers. On Oct. 17, the Post-Summit Workshop will empower community leaders interested in learning how to measure their community’s state of play and mobilize stakeholders to grow access to sport. Those in attendance will gain first access to the forthcoming Community Action Toolkits – a new online platform to support communities in giving all kids the opportunity to be active through sport – regardless of zip code or ability. Registration for this year’s summit is now open, with early-bird registration closing on July 24. Follow this link to register.
