O-Ringen have always worked with and contributed to the development of the sport, today it is one of the missions from the owners, the Swedish Orienteering Federation, to:
Be a platform for the development of orienteering in Sweden and in the world.
Every year during the O-Ringen week in cooperation with the International Orienteering Federation (IOF) we arranges Academy. More about the Academy and the invitation to Sälen 2016 is available here.
During O-Ringen in Borås 2015, we also did a compass collection for the benefit of those active in developing countries.
To contribute to the development of the sport is important for O-Ringen, thats why we want to share IOF Christmas campaign:
Be an Orienteering Santa Claus
- what can you or your club do?
Many developing orienteering countries need equipment to be able to develop. Basic things like punches, control flags and compasses can make a big difference. The IOF Christmas donations campaign helps you and your club to contribute with equipment giveaways.
The IOF office will coordinate the donations and mediate direct contact so you can send your donation where it is most needed. The best way is to send the donation directly without a middleman, but if needed it will also be possible to send through the IOF office.
What can you or your club do? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how you want to contribute.
All donations and receivers will be published at orienteering.org.
