Sports for Good

History
 
The NEXUS Sports for Good Lab launched in March 2016, to galvanize thought-leaders in the world of sports to use their platform and influence to drive social change through sports-related outreach. Led by NEXUS members who are engaged as athletes, entrepreneurs, NGO leaders, philanthropists and/or whose families run sports businesses, the collective influence of this work is potentially significant. The Sports for Good Lab is led by Co-Chairs Erika Binger, Jody R. Weiss, Jason Kampf and Yohei Fujimoto.
 
Mission Statement
 
The NEXUS Sports For Good Lab explores best practices in supporting our planet and building the character of our youth and next generation through the medium of sports. The lab will look at the industry as a whole and provide solutions and tools to transform the negative aspects of sports. Sports unify or divide. The lab explores how we can bring the positive impact and qualities of sports into everyday life.
