Key Quotes from the Event
The summit was initiated by a group of current and former sport administrators, academics, athletes, and policy-makers from across the province who feel that greater knowledge sharing and collective problem solving may help us to create a more inclusive, sustainable, and successful sport system. Further changes in funding structures are sparking the need for more innovative approaches. The structure and topics of this summit were determined by a set of surveys sent out to over one hundred Alberta sport and recreation organizations.

The project was funded by a SSHRC Connections Grant, a KIAS Dialogue grant, and a City of Edmonton events grant, as well as in-kind support from the University of Alberta's Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation, Alberta Sport Connections, and the Canadian Paralympic Committee.
