ProjectPlay Summit



Launched in 2013 by the Aspen Institute Sports & Society Program, the initiative develops, applies and shares knowledge that helps build healthy communities through sports. We produce reports that take measure of the state of play at the national, regional and city levels, with exclusive data and insights. We create frameworks and tools that stakeholders can use to grow access to quality sport. Then each fall, we pump new ideas into the bloodstream and push the movement forward at the Project Play Summit, the nation's premier annual gathering of leaders at the intersection of youth, sport and health.


We also mobilize leaders at the community level. In Baltimore, Harlem, Southeast Michigan and Western New York, we have used Collective Impact methodology to create shared agendas and develop mutually reinforcing actions. We help foundations shape grant-making criteria and connect local groups with national organizations that can lead to new investment or innovative partnerships.
