Spirit of the Game Discussion Groups will meet on a regular basis up to 4 times per month to discuss specific topics and/or for general discussions about the SotG Principles and their impact on society.
Each month the World SotG Foundation will be selecting a specific topic for recommended discussion that month, as well as weekly suggestions for clubs which are meeting more than once a month.
We rely on these Discussion Groups to help hone and refine the SotG Principles and their specific applicability to various topics, so we ask each group to email our global coordinator with a brief summary of each of those talks, and those emails will be compiled into an entry in our monthly newsletter, so groups can learn from and share their insights with other groups. We’ll also be establishing a schedule where groups can meet via video call with groups in other cities for larger discussions and getting to know each other.
Our current schedule of discussion topics:
