UNICEF Safe and Healthy Environment Fund: Driving better futures

In April 2021, Formula E 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. The Fund was created to deliver environmental programmes and policy actions for children and young people around the world.

Formula E, like UNICEF, wants to accelerate positive change around the world, with its #ChangeAccelerated campaign to ensure children and young people grow up on a cleaner, safer planet. The funding from Formula E contributes to programmes and policy actions to improve the wellbeing of over three million children. Projects include initiatives to provide schools with sustainable energy solutions and reduce child exposure to air pollution through increased monitoring and advocacy.

Clearing the air

According to UNICEF, 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.

Driving better futures for every child

Throughout the season, we'll be speaking to some of the 22 racers on the grid about their childhood memories. We'll hear what has changed since they were growing up and how we can come together to help ensure we're able to give children the same opportunities today as our drivers had when they were kids.
