IOF and ISF have signed a Memorandum of Understanding

Posted on | February 4, 2017 | Category: News, Newsletter

IOF is very happy to announce that a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the IOF and the International School Sport Federation (ISF).

IOF and ISF have the intention to cooperate with each other for the benefit of youth sport in general and more specifically for the continued growth of youth orienteering.

The agreement between the IOF and the ISF entails cooperation in the development of the sport of orienteering among the youth. It focuses the attention on two main aspects: firstly, on the relevance of the educational element of youth sport. IOF and ISF will cooperate and coordinate the way school orienteering events shall be structured and organised. ISF showed great interest in the innovation and success of World Orienteering Day (WOD) in 2016. The coming years ISF will cooperate with the goal of attaining a significant global WOD participation in schools.

Secondly, on the importance of the cooperation between the two federations in terms of harmonisation of the international calendar and organisation of events.

In this respect, the first occasion that will see the fruits of this new cooperation will certainly be the Orienteering World School Championship taking place in Palermo, Italy, on 22-28 April, 2017.

The president of the International Orienteering Federation Leho Haldna and the ISF president Laurent Petrynka met at SportAccord IF Forum in Lausanne.
