FIA Conference 2021 | Federation Internationale de l'Automobile

FIA Conference 2021

In 2020, faced with unprecedented challenges, we gathered online for the first eConference Sport and Mobility in our history. One of the lessons we drew from it was that despite the geographical distance and the complex context, the FIA family is capable of great resilience and solidarity. 

From 5 to 8 July 2021, Member Clubs’ Presidents, senior executives representing our affiliated organisations, as well as global leaders and experts joined forces to take stock of the recent achievements and prepare the future.

It opened with a purpose-driven session. At this time of great challenge, our community has reaffirmed its will to increase the positive contribution of motor sport and mobility to society by launching the Purpose Driven movement. The crisis has definitively acted as an accelerator and this session was the moment to share examples of initiatives and projects.

Among other things, the Sport sessions explored the economic and social impact of our sport, as well as the place of women in our disciplines. Also, the discussion demonstrated with tangible examples how motor sport has no barriers or limits to participation.

Mobility sessions addressed how to foster business diversification and innovation in Mobility Clubs and how to remove barriers to tourism development.

Finally, during joint sessions we discussed the future of powertrain technologies, Vision Zero and the Youth’s engagement in tackling the road safety challenge.

- Jean Todt, FIA President
