Here's the article I wrote for The New School's Public Seminar Journal. It's about boycotts.....and why I'm against them, as several in the political community are discussing a potential boycott of the 2022 Winter Games in China.
To learn why I'm against Olympic boycotts and to see who is really harmed by them, I invite you to read my article over at the Public Seminar website!
I am pleased to have been invited to join the global Host City Americas 2021 conference as their keynote speaker - and I'm inviting you to join us on June 29th for this educational and networking event!
From the event:
"With FIFA deciding this year on 23 cities hosting the 2026 World Cup, with Los Angeles hosting the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games and with Santiago hosting the 2023 Pan and Parapan American Games, all eyes are on the Americas at this pivotal moment in world history. Host City Americas connects international rights holders and suppliers with event hosts and investors in the Americas.
Participants in Host City events include IOC Members, Sports Ministers, Mayors, International Federations and Organising Committee leaders. Join 1,000+ participants at Host City Americas to discover the opportunities ahead as we emerge from the pandemic to a landscape defined by digitalisation and private investment."
Note that tickets are free, but reservations and booking are required. For more information, read more at the Host City Americas 2021 website:
