Special Episode: Can Sport Help Bring Positive Social Change?
The week before the Lions departure for the 2021 tour, we sat down for a special live edition of the Talking Stigma podcast with Gareth Thomas, World Cup winners Bryan Habana & Nolli Waterman, Craig Doyle and ViiV Healthcare’s Helen McDowell.
As well as the ultimate rugby challenge, the Lions tour provides an ideal backdrop and opportunity for public education via the power of sport, with the Lions representing one of the ultimate team challenges.
Sport and physical activity have the power to bring about positive social change for individuals and communities. The Tackle HIV campaign, founded by Gareth and ViiV Healthcare, with the Terrence Higgins Trust supporting as the charity partner is an example of where sport can help bring about public education, understanding, and social change. Gareth tells us a bit about the campaign and discusses more broadly with Nolli, Bryan and Craig how sport can help bring about this change.
Feel free to get in touch with us with your thoughts, ideas and feedback. We’d love you to find out more about the Tackle HIV campaign by visiting tacklehiv.org, or check us out on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
