Sabrina Filzmoser and Flavio Canto appointed IJF Climate Ambassadors

Sabrina Filzmoser of Austria and Flavio Canto of Brazil were just appointed as ‘IJF Climate Ambassadors’ by IJF President Marius Vizer.

Among the threats that are hanging over our heads, global warming is perhaps the most dangerous and worrying long term.

Every day, we are confronted more and more by dangerous climatic episodes, which have a considerable impact on our lives. The easy way out would be to give up and say there isn’t much we can do about it, but that is not in the philosophy of judo; on the contrary.

We are happy to see Sabrina Filzmoser and Flavio Canto joining us to bring a message of hope, particularly to the youngest ones, to whom the world of tomorrow will belong. It is up to us to offer them a home that is in the best possible condition.

The challenge is great and the obstacles are numerous. From massive deforestation, to soil pollution through hyper-consumption, our civilisation has a major impact on the environment. The polar ice caps are melting and the sea level is rising. We are facing a massive wildlife extinction.

Beyond the alarmist observations, we can act and this is what the world’s judo community has decided to do.

Sabrina Filzmoser said, “As judoka we know how to fight for our dreams, reaching beyond the moon, aiming further than the brightest stars. We all have a duty to fight for our fragile environment on this planet.”
