We positively impact our host cities with year-long community engagement to more effectively spread our global sustainability message.
Each season we work with charities and engage with local stakeholders to achieve our mission of generating a positive impact, both in the local communities where we race and globally.
We bring local community groups and schools to visit the event and learn first-hand about the excitement of electric vehicles, their role in a sustainable future of mobility and the impact of inner-city air pollution. We also provide free or affordable access to the Allianz E-Village so local communities can experience the thrill of the race through games and educational activities.
By creating unforgettable experiences, we are better able to connect with communities and more effectively spread our global sustainability message.
Motorsport is one of the only sports where men and women can compete as equals. However, as of today, only 1.5% of total licensees recorded in the world are women. FIA Girls On Track aims to increase that percentage by inviting young women from 8 to 18 years old to discover, for free, the different aspects of Motorsport and its industry through a set of activities and workshops.
The FIA Girls on Track is a true 360° project to empower young girls and promote gender equality in an innovative, engaging and positive manner. As Motorsport is also strongly linked to major industry, FIA Girls On Track gives the girls involved in the programme the chance to engage with career opportunities in all aspects of motorsport and beyond.
For several seasons, Formula E has hosted the FIA Smart Cities programme to advance the development of more sustainable, safer and more connected cities, working towards a low-carbon economy.
The FIA Smart Cities Forums bring together experts from different fields of sustainable mobility and seek to demonstrate how cities can grow in a more sustainable and inclusive way, making the best use of innovative technology and calling for effective policymaking. The Formula E races provide a unique arena for the FIA Smart Cities Initiative along with the FIA’s expertise in its complimentary pillars of Mobility and Sport.
We also hold an international entrepreneurship contest at the Forum to identify, support and invest in the world’s most impactful technology companies in the smart cities ecosystem. Some themes we have addressed include; autonomous driving, big data and artificial intelligence.
