Project of „Cross-border cooperation in Orienteering” is based on the prior co-operation of the Orienteering-Pécs Foundation and the Orienteering Club Sova. The project aims at activating young people to support healthy life styles through sport activities, to develop cultural awareness and tolerance towards different cultures and enable them discover their identities and roles as young individuals in European Context. In general our main goal is the popularisation of foot orienteering on the border area.
Orienteering is a sport which combines both physical and mental element. The basic idea is to proceed from course start to finish by visiting a number of control points in a predetermined order with the help of a special orienteering map and compass. In order to choose the best possible route, orienteers look at the characteristics of the terrain, and the winner is determined by the fastest time to complete the course.
Our project shows the society positive experience of co-operation and positive picture of sport. We would like to reach the public of the Interreg Programme:
-to motivate more young people to physical activity in nature, thus preventing health problems,
-supporting young people in training basic skills needed to make their way in life,
-foster social equity and social inclusion through a sport at low costs,
-to give better access to sport in the area,
-to give higher motivation for physical activity for everyone regardless of their age.
