Please join us for the “Fencing for the Planet” webinar, an informative and useful programme that is part of an FIE global environmental initiative. We will be discussing ways in which local and national initiatives and actions may be undertaken to benefit and protect the environment.

The session will offer ideas at many levels to inspire fencers, coaches, supporters, clubs and federations to become involved in environmental efforts.

  • Ana Irene Delgado Guerra, FIE Vice-President, head of the “Fencing and Environment” working group
  • Julie Duffus, IOC, Sustainability Senior Manager
  • Melissa Alvarenga, Pan American Fencing Confederation, Executive Secretary

  • Bianca Santa (PUR), athlete
  • Carlos Correa, former environment minister of Colombia
  • Alvaro de Marichalar (ESP), explorer
