WHAT WE DO

ORGANIZE THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

While rafters and paddle sport community around the world enjoy watching and following the Rafting World Champioship every two years, it is sometimes overlooked just how much work goes in to hosting the WRF World Championship.

SUSTAINABILITY

The recent development of the sport of rafting on artificial venues, both in terms of competition and in terms of leisure, adds two important elements of sustainability.


WRF LEGACY

The term legacy, as it has been defined in the IOC Legacy Strategic Approach, has different meanings for different people, languages and cultures.


PROTECT THE ENVIROMENTAL

WRF is responsible for and undertakes to consider the protection of the environment when organizing and promoting its activities.



RIVER GUIDES TRAINING PROGRAM

River guides, in their activity meet a lot of people; they play a key role both in the promotion of paddle sport and in the protection of the environment that surrounds them.

GENDER EQUALITY

The WRF’s strategic objective around gender equality calls for growing female participation at the World Championship to 50 per cent. This significant, yet achievable, increase will build upon recent advances in gender parity.
