Utilising sport and nature to create a sustainable future for our planet.
About Sails of Change
Sails of Change is a foundation dedicated to the protection and regeneration of biodiversity, created by Dona Bertarelli, her husband Yann Guichard, and her children.
“Sails of Change was born from our family’s shared passion for sports, art and nature. We wanted to inform, inspire and unite a wide range of publics to change their behaviour for the benefit of nature.”
Each of us has the power to protect nature. We work to inspire people and organisations to change their behaviour, helping them to identify practical ways to become nature-positive.
We are all in this together. We bring together stakeholders, identify and promote solutions, and form a community of peers who learn from, and progress with, each other.
What counts is meaningful change. We seek to influence policy-makers and decision-makers. We work with partners to regenerate ecosystems, and support projects to protect and preserve nature.
Sports for Nature
In October 2022, Sails of Change , the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), IOC, UNEP launched ‘Sports for Nature’, a partnership to help sports organisations mitigate negative impacts on biodiversity and climate.
The first campaign to be supported by Sails of Change is ‘30x30’, a global call for action to protect at least 30% of the ocean and the earth by 2030. This message adorns the sails on both the stable’s boats, the TF35 catamaran as well as the maxi-trimaran. The latter will display the #30x30 logo around the world during the Jules Verne Trophy, in association with the new blue and green livery on the stable’s flagship.Discover Sails of Change
