Formula E in support of UNICEF

Presents: Take a Breath

To drive a better future for the children of tomorrow, we need to change today
For too long the world has lived today without care for tomorrow.
Our cities choked in the push for progress without thought for the cost.
To create a better future for generations to come, we need to drive change today.
Together with UNICEF, we are a partnership of purpose to accelerate positive change.
Together we race for clean air, for cities free of emissions.
We stand united.
Working to empower the next generation.
To create a cleaner and safer future,
For every child.

Together, for the Next Generation

Children are the least responsible for climate change and yet they will bear the greatest burden of its impact. We want to harness the drive and determination of children and empower them to create a better world by directly supporting programmes around the globe that drive sustainable progress and education.

Safe and Healthy Environment Fund

From April 2021, we started a three-year partnership in support of UNICEF's Safe and Healthy Environment Fund, which aims to create a sustainable, safe and clean environment for children.

Funding from Formula E will contribute to programmes and policy actions to improve the wellbeing of over three million children. Projects supported by the Fund include initiatives to provide schools with sustainable energy solutions and reduce child exposure to air pollution through increased monitoring and advocacy.

racing for a cleaner future, faster

UNICEF reports that children are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change. Nearly 160 million live in areas of high or extremely high drought severity, over half a billion in high or extremely high flood occurrence zones and an estimated two billion in areas where air pollution levels exceed standards set by the World Health Organisation.

A sport designed for fans of the future and aligned to the FIA’s PurposeDriven movement, Formula E feels a responsibility to protect this next generation and will use its global platform to raise awareness of and amplify UNICEF’s work.

Racing with a reason

Formula E is more than a just a racing series - it's a race for the future. The all-electric race series paves the way for the road cars of the future, acting as a competitive platform to test and develop the latest in electric technology. By pitching the world's top manufacturers against each other on the city streets, Formula E promotes the adoption of sustainable mobility in city centres in a bid to combat air pollution and lessen the affects of climate change.
