Sport at the Service of Humanity Conference
On October 5th, 2016 the first-ever conference of its kind, Sport at the Service of Humanity (SSH16), was held at The Vatican. Pope Francis was the leader behind the creation the conference. He believed it was a necessary and timely initiative because of the global problems facing society. He wanted to encourage today’s world leaders to help restore faith in faith using the power of sport.
The SSH16 Management Committee began planning 18 months in advance. Aspire played a major role in shaping both the conference itself and the proposed legacy movement Humanity Sports Club. Six critical principles were developed by this group and shared during the conference. This formed the basis of what Pope Francis hopes people across the globe will adopt, promote and adhere to on a daily basis going forward.
At Aspire, we have posted each of these Principles in our Corporate office in Atlanta, GA to help inspire our employees to live by them each day.
Bernie is asking the Aspire community to help make humanity a safer and more peaceful place to live. For all people to be Involved, Included and Inspired. Start with yourself, then your loved ones, friends and associates. Then spread the message of Faith In Humanity and Faith in the Power of Sports.
