The 2021 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships, to be held in Val di Sole, Trentino, from August 25 to 29, will take place in the name of sustainability. The organizing committee guided by Grandi Eventi Val di Sole and the Val di Sole Tourism Board, is conducting environmental initiatives that earned the ‘Eco Events’ label from the Province of Trento.

Val di Sole and the Province of Trento are committed to the protection of the environment and its natural beauties, with sustainable measures to reduce the impact of major events on the surrounding landscape.
The World Championships in Val di Sole are inspired to water, a standout element of this territory. In this case, the water coming from the Val di Sole mountains will be available free of charge at the UCI MTB World Championships, thanks to the crafting and installation of two large wooden fountains in the event’s area.

In addition, the organizing committee is working on the measures for waste separation, creating a proper recycling area and the presence of signs to facilitate this process. Among the initiatives, the use of plastic and biodegradable materials will be kept as low as possible. On the other hand, the presence of ingredients from Trentino will characterize the gastronomic proposals, including vegetarian dishes. 

Major sport events can have an impact on the environment and we must be aware of the goal to reduce this effect, in coherence with the commitment of Val di Sole”, said the Director of the Val di Sole Tourism Board Fabio Sacco. – “Pejo3000 is the first plastic-free ski area in the World, and our innovative project "#OP2020 Uno di Un Milione" (One Of A Million) is becoming a concrete reality. We have taken the first steps of an ambitious project, following the guidance of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.
