Game Changers: Empowering Latino Youth through Sport and the 2026 World Cup

This session is focusing on harnessing the power of sports for social impact, recognizing the critical role of play in shaping the health and development of children. Underserved communities, disproportionately lacking recreational facilities, highlight the urgency of creating safer spaces and promoting enjoyable activities to foster healthy lifestyles. The aim is to ensure every child, especially Latino children, has access to safe play areas. Through collaborative efforts with companies and community partners, environments can be re-imagined and re-created where all children can learn and thrive. This lively discussion will center on leveraging sports to engage communities, inspire action, and drive change, offering insights into the transformative potential of sports, particularly in anticipation of the 2026 World Cup.
