Rony Epelbaum is a young professional and former student-athlete from Mexico with a love for sport and nature. He earned a BSc in Sport Administration from the University of Miami in Florida, USA, and recently completed a semester of graduate study in Sustainable Development at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland.
As a young professional, Rony has collaborated with several sport stakeholders such as Olympic Games Organizing Committees (OCOGs), National Olympic Committees (NOCs), Sporting Federations (IFs), as well as professional athletes. His most recent project focused in the development and implementation of an Olympic pre-Games training camp in Tachikawa, Japan with 150 participants from 30 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) of the Americas, in preparation for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Through these collaborations, he developed first-hand awareness of sport’s potential to become a powerful catalyst for positive change.
In 2021, Rony founded Sport For The Wild, an initiative to design innovative and multilateral collaborations that value the influential power of sport to promote biodiversity conservation and rewilding.
