Symposium on "Overcoming Isolation and Deepening Social Connectedness"

Special Olympics was a partner in the symposium Overcoming Isolation and Deepening Social Connectedness, held in Toronto earlier this month. It was the first global gathering on this topic. The symposium brought together an extraordinary network of global leaders, thinkers, practitioners, educators, policy-shapers and journalists with powerful experiences and expertise related to isolation and social connectedness, including Special Olympics athletes and our chair Tim Shriver. The aim of the symposium was to launch a global movement around these issues. Symposium participants shared state-of-the field research, exchanged experiences about the best approaches to enhance social connectedness, and helped build an inspired community of practice.
