Plenary Session 2

Preserving the world for future generations: women as role models. Changing the world takes people on a mission: Inspiring young people to make a difference

MAIN ROOM

Moderator: Gavin Emmett

Panellists:

  • Jill Savery (CEO at Bristlecone Strategies, Inc.)

  • Kristin Engvig (Founder & CEO Women’s International Networking)

  • Luca Guzzabocca (General Manager Right Hub and Chairman of Acquisti & Sostenibilitá)

  • Andrea Coleman (Owner, Riders for Health)

In this plenary session, we will stress the importance of promoting women and sustainability and how, as sporting community, we can raise even greater awareness on those two themes. It is crucial to play an active part in ensuring that future generations will be able to enjoy the same privileges as their predecessors and to face a brighter future. How, as members of the sporting community, should we behave?  What is our role? How can we promote the presence of women in our sport and develop their fullest potential?

Inspiring the youngest amongst us, this generation known as the millennial generation, a generation strongly committed to the environment, equality and social responsibility, is a task that we must embrace if we want to make a difference.  Our mission is to organise sustainable, safe, healthy and equitable events, and, in this way, we can be part of the change that will undoubtedly benefit all the communities around us.

Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world
— Nelson Mandela

Education has become a fundamental pillar for the development of motorcycling sport, especially when it comes to sustainable development and gender equity. It is vital to be able to draw on people and resources to enable us to educate our members, riders, organisers, promoters, sponsors, media, etc. Exchanging views and ideas around these specific issues and seeking solutions are key for building solid foundations for a sustainable and inclusive sport.   

Five prestigious and highly experienced professionals will be leading the discussions on this crucial topic of education and on its direct contribution to implement long-lasting sustainability. The FIM has put in place several sustainability programmes focusing on education and training in the field of the environment.  Come and join us to this lively and interesting session and seize the opportunity to ask all your questions to our expert panellists whose answers will reflect a wide array of perspectives in terms of gender, culture, personal experience…

Inspiring Volunteers in Motorcycling: the hidden potential of women                      

SECONDARY ROOM

Moderator: Gavin Emmett

Panellists:

  • Natalia Gallego – FIM Environmental Steward and member of the Andorra Federation

  • Susanne Hüttinger - Track Racing referee and CFM member

  • Velia Hargreaves - FIM Latin America Women’s Commission Director and CFM member

  • Andrea Coleman – Owner, Riders for Health (international social enterprise enabling health workers to deliver vital health care to rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa)

  • Eva Asderaki-Moore - Grand Slam Tennis Chair Umpire

These days most of the motorcycle clubs, federations and organisations are struggling to develop their pool of volunteers. Volunteers are crucial to running successful events or organisations. New blood is desperately needed to continue organising high-level events and competitions and ensure the longevity of our sport. Women are part of an untapped workforce for motorsport and should be encouraged to come forward. But how do we engage them? How do we motivate them and convince them to join the motorcycling family? How should we recognise the importance of volunteers and reward them for their efforts? This session will provide you with the tools to make volunteering more fruitful for all parties concerned!

Plenary Session 1

From Inspiration to Empowerment: Fostering diversity and environmental stewardship in motorcycling

Main Room

Moderator: Gavin Emmet

Panellists:

  • Ana Muñoz Merino:  Former  General Director of Sport at the Superior Council of Sport, Spain. Anti doping and Fair Play expert. 
  • Janet Macharia (Head of Gender and Social Safeguards Unit, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP))
  • Nita Korhonen (FIM CFM Director)
  • Kattia Juárez Hernández FIM CIE (International Environment Commission)Director
  • Inés María Fonseca (Director: Comisión Femenina Real Federaión Motociclista Española)

In a generation as special as the one we have before us - highly connected (web, apps, social media etc.) and focused on consumerism and self-sufficiency - inspiration and empowerment are key to changing mentalities and create more environmentally and socially responsible events.

Women and sustainability are of enormous relevance to sport today and in particular to motorsports.

Motorcycling sport has a huge potential for development if it increases the participation of women in sport as well as in all the adjacent sectors and activities (administration, volunteering, leading positions etc.). Empowerment, mentoring and sharing experience are crucial to inspiring the motorcycling community to foster diversity.  

Empowerment and inspiration were also key with regards to sustainability as they contributed to steering the FIM Ride Green programme, which has already made an impression with the implementation of important initiatives such as the FIM Environmental Ambassadors, the FIM KiSS programme and the FIM Environmental Award, among others.

This plenary session, which will focus on those two overarching themes, will give the sport another dimension and help us create blueprints that will enable all of us to unleash our creativity and find new solutions to tackle specific problems. You will have the unique opportunity to listen to and share with high-level panellists who are experts on these topics and who will bring to the table different perspectives, geographical, cultural and professional.
