Today we are closing the 2022 FIM Sustainability Week celebrating the World Environmental Day and we want to call to action to all our National Federations in the six Continental Unions and the members of the wider FIM Family to recognise the urgency to practice sustainable motorcycling.
We call our members to apply and respect our regulations, adapt sustainable strategies that add value to our championships, that support the local communities, that use the sport as an enabler of sustainable development.
We are aware of the severe climate crisis, and we are contributing to the mitigation avoiding, reducing, researching, changing mentalities and contributing with projects aimed to neutralise the non-avoidable emissions. This is a call to be more inclusive and to also respect the biodiversity.
We want to have motorcycling capable of changing behaviours and to be a contributor in the local community. Motorcycling that could serve as a laboratory for testing new technologies, alternative energies, and more secure mobility. Motorcycling is also a generator of well-being, an educator in security practices and a contributor. The task is not easy, but not impossible.
Today, we recognise that we have #OnlyOneEarth and #OnlyOneTrack
#OnlyOneEarth is the 2022 slogan that was taken from the slogan adopted in Sweden in 1972 during the first United Nations Conference on the Human Environment.
World Environment Day is Led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and held annually on 5 June since 1973. World Environment Day is the largest global platform for environmental public outreach and is celebrated by millions of people across the world. This year it is hosted by Sweden and celebrate by the FIM since 2006.
