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…
