I am attending a workshop at the Australian Sports Commission in Canberra today.
The Australian Sports Commission and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation are working together on a project “to provide a direction for the Australian Government and sports community by identifying a range of trends that may impact Australian sport over the next 30 years”.
The workshop will explore the preliminary findings of a study on The Future of Australian Sport and consider six sport megatrends.
Stefan Hajkowicz will open the workshop with a presentation on the megatrends the project has identified. This will be followed by group discussions and conversation mapping about the trends. The afternoon session will be focused on policy implications.
I have written about this project and about megatrends.
I am looking forward to the day’s discussions. It will be fascinating to hear workshop views about sport in 2040.
