IFI joins UNAOC One Humanity Campaign

in News Update

The International Federation Icestocksport (IFI) is proud to announce that we have joined the UNAOC One Humanity Campaign, which calls for solidarity, compassion and unity in the face of discrimination and divisiveness. The International Federations which sign up to the initiative have pledged their commitment to the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations’ (UNAOC) campaign. The campaign will see signatory sports champion One Humanity by demonstrating their commitment to peaceful and inclusive societies through a range of initiatives and projects that will be featured on a dedicated online platform in future to increase the visibility of this important campaign.

“IFI strongly supports the values promoted by the UNAOC One Humanity Campaign and aims to help the worldwide community to friendship, teamwork and non-discrimination,” stated IFI President Christian Lindner.

“IFI will promote the campaign of the United Nations in the Icestocksport family to contribute to peace through sport and human rights and further the cause of a better global society,” added IFI Secretary General Silke Bernardi.

“UNAOC, as the leading United Nations initiative to advance understanding, cooperation, and dialogue among nations and peoples across all cultures, has recognized the ability of sport to further its call for promoting diversity and positive social change. Through the One Humanity campaign in particular, sport, together with the Alliance, will promote diversity as an advantage rather than a threat,” stated Miguel Ángel Moratinos, UNAOC High Representative.

Under the agreement, IFI commits to promote the “Alliance Of Civilizations” platform by means of a set of activities to be implemented directly by IFI or indirectly through its network of partners by the following actions:

  • Conceptualization, production and edition of a video featuring IFI’s athletes and personalities under the motto: “One Humanity.”
  • Displaying the UNAOC Promotional video in IFI’s own and third parties media channels and platforms that IFI will be able to provide for the aim of this action.
  • Under the same platform of “Alliance Of Civilizations,” IFI will propose at its discretion other promotional activities or projects that the parties may consider relevant to accomplish the objectives and purposes of UNAOC.

IFI joins UNFCCC’s Sports for Climate Action initiative

in News Update

The International Federation Icestocksport (IFI) is proud to announce that we have joined the UNFCCC’s Sports for Climate Action initiative as a signatory to the Sports for Climate Action Framework.

The Sports for Climate Action initiative calls on sporting organizations to acknowledge the contribution of the sports sector to climate change and our responsibility to strive towards climate neutrality for a safer planet.

Through collective action and bold leadership, we have the power to make this fast and drastic transformation. By signing the Framework, we have demonstrated our commitment to playing our part to ensure the sports sector is on the path to a low-carbon future.

In line with the five core principles enshrined in the Framework and the aims of the Paris Agreement, our organization will strive to:

  • promote greater environmental responsibility;
  • reduce the overall climate impact from sports;
  • use our platform to educate for climate action;
  • promote sustainable and responsible consumption; and
  • advocate for climate action through our communications.

“IFI as International Federation is directly affected by the climate change as a winter sport often played on frozen lakes in classic Alp countries or North American territories, and the climate change negatively impacts the conditions of the ice here”, commented IFI President Christian Lindner when signing the UNFCCC’s Sports for Climate Action initiative.

“As we are committed to a sustainable development, it was quite a natural thing for us to join the framework to contribute to the worldwide action to fight for the environmental responsibility of sports”, added IFI Secretary General Silke Bernardi, who will be joining the Work Group 4 (Educate and Advocate for Climate Action) of the UNFCCC initiative.

Speaking at the launch event for the Framework UNFCCC Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa explained that sports organizations and athletes are in a unique position in the race against climate change “because sports touches on every cross-section of society”.

“With this in mind, we hope our commitment will inspire our fans, community and government to raise their climate ambition in a united effort to limit global warming to 1.5oC. This is a race we can—and must—win to avoid significantly worsening the risk of droughts, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people”.
