Abstract: The following discussion is one of the five thought-provoking dialogues in the Sport and Society series (February 8th-March 15th 2010) featuring Olympic and Paralympic athletes who have used their celebrity to make a difference in the world. The series was hosted by Intellectual Muscle: University Dialogues for the Vancouver 2010 Games, developed by Vancouver 2010 and the University of British Columbia, in collaboration with universities across Canada and The Globe and Mail. Abstract: Inspired by the dream of a world accessible and inclusive for all, Rick Hansen set out on his legendary Man In Motion World Tour, on March 21, 1985, raising $26 million for SCI research. More importantly was the collective shift in consciousness in the belief of the potential of people with disabilities when barriers are removed. Twenty-five years later, that dream continues. In this keynote address Rick Hansen talks about how far we have come, the power of sport as a vehicle for social change and what the future holds. A panel discussion with Dr. Bruce McManus and invited participants follows his presentation.
