Worldwide awareness of the environment and appropriate action are essential, since human beings continue to plunder the global environment and are failing to protect resources and ecosystems. Understanding of the environmental challenges we face remains alarmingly low.

We have a great opportunity to play a constructive role on environmental issues, both as a sport and also to inform our competitors and other stakeholders.  FIM AFRICA thus encourages all its affiliated FMN’s to draw awareness amongst their riders, clubs, etc about the importance of preserving our environment.
