2019 Forward Thinking Series: Sport Jam
Do you want to increase participation in sport and active recreation? If yes, join us at the 2019 Sport Jam – a design thinking workshop for sports administrators, both paid and volunteer.
Together we will tackle one critical question:
How might we positively influence people’s lives through sport and physical activity?
About the workshop
- How to clearly define and interrogate a problem and recognise opportunities.
- Techniques to build empathy with your target audience.
- Creative problem-solving skills relevant to the sport and active recreation context.
- How to test and refine ideas with potential participants.
- Useful, efficient processes to help you to grow participation in sport and active recreation.
Be a team captain
You’ll spend most of the two days in small groups with 1-2 appointed team captains. The role of the captain is to be a positive leader within the group and keep everyone on track with the activities. Captains will receive an extra half-day briefing on Wednesday 6 March to prepare them to lead a group. If you would like to be a team captain, please express your interest when you register below or email Tom Dixon at email@example.com by Friday 1 March.
This workshop will be co-facilitated by Vicsport (the peak body for sport in Victoria) and Portable, a digital design and technology company proudly born in Melbourne. For over a decade, Portable has been at the forefront of design and technology, working with governments and for-purpose organisations to drive change.
