Who We Are

Welcome to World Climate Athletes!

At World Climate Athletes, we are a passionate community of individuals who believe that athletes have a unique platform to drive positive change and raise awareness about climate issues. We are dedicated to harnessing the power of sports to inspire action, promote sustainability, and create a more resilient world.

Our vision is simple yet ambitious: to unite athletes from across the globe, empowering them to become advocates for environmental stewardship. We firmly believe that athletes, with their immense influence and reach, can become catalysts for change, inspiring fans, fellow athletes, and organizations to take meaningful steps towards addressing climate change.

What sets World Climate Athletes apart is our unwavering commitment to collaboration. We bring together athletes from various sports disciplines, including cricket, soccer, basketball, tennis, golf, and more, fostering a diverse community that transcends borders and transcends differences. By creating a platform where athletes can connect, exchange ideas, and amplify their collective voices, we aim to create a powerful force for climate action.

Our mission is to socialise the impact of climate change on various stakeholders of sports and leverage it to raise awareness about pressing climate challenges, advocate for sustainable practices in sports, and support initiatives that mitigate the impacts of climate change.  We are dedicated to promoting the UNFCCC Sports for Climate Action framework and inspiring sport bodies worldwide to join the movement. By fostering collaboration, raising awareness, and facilitating sustainable practices within the sports community, we aim to create a greener and more sustainable future. Together, we can harness the influence of sports to combat climate change, protect the planet, and inspire positive change for generations to come.

Through our website, we provide a hub of information, resources, and stories that highlight the intersection of sports and climate action. From success stories of athletes who have championed sustainability to practical tips on reducing carbon footprints in sporting events, we strive to inspire and educate our audience. We also organize events, campaigns, and initiatives that encourage collective action and foster a sense of global community united by a common purpose.

Join us on this exhilarating journey as we redefine what it means to be an athlete in the 21st century. Together, we can create a world where sports and sustainability go hand in hand, where athletes become ambassadors for change, and where our collective efforts help preserve our planet for future generations.

Be a part of the movement. Be a World Climate Athlete.
