Formula 1 has revealed a three-year collaboration with UNICEF, the United Nations organization dedicated to promoting children’s rights and well-being.

The Formula 1 World Championship will lend its support to UNICEF’s efforts in providing education and responding to emergencies and disasters, such as the recent earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria, resulting in a significant loss of life.

Through its partnership with UNICEF, Formula 1 will enable the expansion of UNICEF’s digital Learning Passport education program to 19 additional countries, beyond the 26 countries where the program is already being implemented. Furthermore, the collaboration will provide full funding for tuition for 50 university students studying STEM subjects until 2025.

In addition to supporting the expansion of the education program, Formula 1 will also make donations to UNICEF’s emergency fund as part of this three-year partnership. The sport has previously made a donation to UNICEF’s emergency fund in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine in March of the previous year, and also established an affiliate donation link for fans to contribute. This partnership will be in effect for the next three racing seasons.

The CEO of UNICEF UK, Jon Sparkes, stated that the collaboration with Formula 1 will “help provide more children with access to quality education and the training necessary for success in school, work, and life.”

According to Sparkes, “The world is facing an increasingly serious educational crisis, with millions of children still being denied access to school and the technology they require for learning and growth. Investment in education is crucial for the development of children and young people, as well as for building the societies and economies of the future. We must act immediately to address this crisis.”

Sparkes added, “At UNICEF, we believe that sports have a special power to bring people together and address some of the most significant issues impacting children, including those impacted by humanitarian disasters.”


The CEO of Formula 1, Stefano Domenicali, expressed pride in supporting UNICEF’s efforts to expand its educational programs. He said, “We are proud to support UNICEF in this endeavor.”

Domenicali also stated, “In a sport where research, technology, and innovation are crucial factors in a driver and team’s success, education is at the heart of Formula 1.”

Domenicali further added, “This partnership with UNICEF will allow us to leverage our sport’s worldwide platform to address the educational disparities faced by the world’s most vulnerable children. Every child deserves a quality education and protection during emergencies. We are proud to be able to make a difference in providing these children with the knowledge and skills they need to reach their full potential.”
