Race » ╔cologie

A sporting challenge which is in it for the duration in the name of ecotechnology.

Bringing together all stakeholders aware of the need to protect our planet: Eurocrats, politicians, skippers, host cities, partners, academics, scientists, industry, and research and development institutions through the Europa Race, and bringing about mutual cooperation to better prepare the next stage: an ecological forum around Europe

Ecological Perspectives over next five years.


Following the success of the first edition, the Europa Race wishes to become a lasting force and push the boundaries beyond being just a sports event. The goal: become a real platform for communication, international cooperation and exchange for the fight against climate change and the promotion of renewable energy.


Objectives for the 2011 Edition: GENERAL AWARENESS CAMPAIGN

A yacht race around Europe to promote eco-technology and the fight against climate change

Bringing together all stakeholders aware of the need to protect our planet: Eurocrats, politicians, skippers, host cities, partners, academics, scientists, industry, and research and development institutions through the Europa Race, and bringing about mutual cooperation to better prepare the next stage: an ecological forum around Europe

Strengthening of the image and the political clout of the Europa Race's ecological mission by building on the patronage of the European Commission (projects, programmes...)

Compilation of a report on the current situation in terms of climate change, stating the position and aim of each party involved

The creation of an "environmental” charter signed by all skippers and teams to promote responsible actions and behaviour during the event

Public announcement of this study, the details of which will form the basis of the plan for the next two years

Objectives for the  2013 EDITION: ECOLOGICAL FORUM

The Europa Race:  A top level professional race, international and media-attractive. It is a genuine platform for the promotion of the use of renewable energy sources by highlighting climate change and the problem of polluting energy sources. 

Objective: to once again and more strongly put on the agenda, via the race, the major problem of energy sources which is affecting humankind.
The means: Creation of a platform which brings together political decision makers,        scientists, academics, charities, young people, NGOs, and private companies specialising in energy research, in order to delve into the current environmental and ecological situation, and find solutions.

Creation of partnerships between boat sponsors and public/ private institutions  in order to develop projects which run on eco-technology as well as renewable energy

At every European host port, each party will be able to present and promote their proposals/solutions by means of conferences, seminars and events open to the general public. The support and contribution of European institutions will lend a major socio-political dimension to this forum

An eco-challenge for the teams with, moreover, a system of prize-money to incite  teams to use considerably more clean energy during the Europa Race

Objectives for the 2015 EDITION: MOBILE ECOLOGICAL SUMMIT AROUND EUROPE

Transformation of the ecological forum into a large scale Ecological Summit with the presence of European politicians, members of think tanks, NGOs, members of industry whose clear aim is to find concrete solutions to the energy problem and climate change.

One prize-money system only, the calculation of which will be directly linked to the environmental awareness of/ optimisation of the use of clean energy by the sailors and their sponsors
