The Memorandum of Cooperation between the FIM and the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) signed in December 2006, was extended for two more years last October in Alicante (Spain), during the Global Forum for Sport and Environment.
This memorandum has the objective to provide a framework to cooperate and support aiming at reducing the environmental impact of motorcycle events. The collaboration between the FIM and UNEP will continue in order to promote and support the monitoring of environmental programmes in the preparation and staging of FIM events.

The theme for this year’s World Environment Day celebrations is Think.Eat.Save.
Think.Eat.Save is an anti-food waste and food loss campaign that encourages you to reduce your foodprint. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), every year 1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted. This is equivalent to the same amount produced in the whole of sub-Saharan Africa. At the same time, 1 in every 7 people in the world go to bed hungry and more than 20,000 children under the age of 5 die daily from hunger.
