November 8, 2022  –  Recreational orienteering on/offline (19.30-21.00 CET)

Hidi Yamamoto – Navitabi
How do you spread Orienteering to areas where there are no orienteering events, no orienteering maps, and no orienteers? That is the problem NaviTabi is tackling with a smartphone app that allows users to create a navigation sports course – primarily score orienteering / rogaining – using a publicly available map and run an event all off of the app. This presentation is how we are succeeding in Japan as well as in other parts of the world, tying up with a local sports event company as well as other entities. For anyone looking for low budget solutions and an easy way to spread navigation sports to non-orienteering areas.

Jörgen Mårtensson – Turorienteering/Stolpejakten, a global concept?
Successful new activities like “Stolpejakten” and “Hitta Ut”!
Could this type of recreational o-activities become popular and sustainable also in other countries?


December 6, 2022 Orienteering in developing countries and promotion on social media
– Option 1: 13:00-14:30 CET (Orienteering in Asia by Lok Hin Ma and Navitabi by Hidi Yamamoto)
– Option 2: 19.30-21.00 CET

Lok Hin Ma  – Orienteering in Asia
Asia – the largest continent on Earth with over 60% world population. Orienteering is never just an European sport and is growing rapidly in the Far Eastern over the last 10 years. Let’s explore how this new window was opened to Asians from the story of The Thailand Orienteering Federation.

Ondřej Pipek  –  Promoting orienteering on social media
Do you want to know how social sites work? We will answer this question and discuss together how to promote your orienteering event there! This won’t be a lecture but a workshop with discussion and idea exchange of all participants! :-)”

January 10, 2023  –  Knock-out sprint and special forms of orienteering (19.30-21.00 CET)

Ronaldo Santos  –  School mapping in Brazil
The attraction of new orienteering practitioners in Brazil has as an obstacle the production of maps in small areas for the presentation of the sport.  Since 2021, we have been working to support educational projects in public schools, mainly in teacher training, making school maps and organizing events open to students.

Barbara Bryant and Keegan Harkavy  –  Navigation Games – Orienteering Education
Navigation Games is a member club of Orienteering USA with a focus on education for children. In this presentation, we will describe the creation of our school curriculum, which is available for others to use. We will also describe how we complement the school curriculum with other activities to build awareness about orienteering within the local community. 

Daniel Leibundgut  –  Knock-out sprint

Februar 7, 2023  –  Maze orienteering: Orienteering for everybody (19.30-21.00 CET)

Göran Anderson  –  Maze orienteering
During several years we have implemented Maze Orienteering among many schools in Sweden. Our club, Dalaportens OL, has taken a leading role in this area. Maze Orienteering is not only a great tool for the teachers to teach navigation, it is also a great way to promote our sport and not least an upcoming new competition format. A duel between the two runners with mirror-reversed courses and a “Maze-Sprint-Maze-Sprint-Maze of 2,5 km long orienteering course are two versions of Maze Orienteering as competition formats. Maybe these formats of competitions will attract the Olympic delegates …?
Beyond the limits; World MAZE Race!!
