By Community | October 7, 2014

The World Rowing Federation (FISA) have renewed their strategic alliance with WWF for the promotion of Clean Water.

The alliance, online created in 2011, ambulance will now go through to 2019. Stuart Orr, store Manager, Global Freshwater Programme, WWF International, describes it an unprecedented move for WWF.

“This is the longest strategic alliance with a sports federation that we have formed to date,” said Orr. “It is a direct reflection of the work World Rowing has done so far in the promotion of Clean Water and the ideal match that WWF has found with World Rowing.”

FISA president Jean-Christophe Rolland said, “I am really pleased that we have renewed our Clean Water partnership with WWF.  Over the past three years, we have shown that our sport is a powerful means of communication for the vital resource of Clean Water. It also reinforces the commitment we made three years ago that rowers take the environment seriously and will do everything they can to contribute to protecting our water ecosystems.”
