IOF General Assembly approves strategy for the next four years

The XXXI IOF General Assembly was successfully organised on Friday, July 1 with a duration of only 3 hours. The event was organised in a hybrid format allowing delegates to participate either in person in Denmark or remotely, and 34 member federations were represented.

The proposal for IOF’s strategy for the next 4 years was unanimously approved, with focus on 4 strategic initiatives:

  1. Actively improve the performance and sustainability* of the IOF and Member Federations
    (*financial, social and environmental)
  2. Improve the IOF Brand and Orienteering’s Visibility
  3. Develop the IOFs Global competition programme
  4. Upgrade Governance further

The General Assembly decided on a new main goal for the IOF; to become a global and sustainable sport, and by this leaving the Olympic ambition as IOF’s main goal.

IOF golden pins of honour were awarded to:
Michael Dowling (Australia)
Clive Allen (Great Britain/Denmark)
David May (Great Britain)
David Rosen (Great Britain)
– for their outstanding contributions to the development of orienteering and the IOF over the years.
