Sport and environment: FISO and PEFC eco-friendly

FISO and PEFC Italy have signed a memorandum of understanding from the deep value eco-friendly:
WOC and WTOC 2014 will be in the name of environmental sustainability.
Several initiatives agreed between the promotion of the territory and good practice "green ".
This will open the sign of compasses , maps and lanterns the month of July 2014 between the Veneto and Trentino , with the arrival of the World Orienteering Championship ( WOC ) and World Trail Orienteering Championship ( WTOC ) which will be held July 5 to 12 from the lagoon of Venice since the plateau of Asiago 7 Comuni and the Trentino Folgaria , Lavarone and Luserna , passing through the center of Trento where it will open a new race format : the sprint relay.
While the preparations and all the land of race remain strictly embargoed for athletes , sport and sustainability have once again found a reason to proceed on a common path : that of promoting greater environmental responsibility and a proper management of forests .
And what sport could be more sensitive to the protection of forests except orienteering , the "sport of the woods" par excellence.
The FISO - Italian Orienteering Federation and PEFC Italy , an association that takes care of the management and control of the PEFC forest certification in our country, have signed a memorandum of understanding that will result in different actions to be carried out also in the forthcoming WOC and WTOC .
This partnership has begun to take its first steps last summer, when Paluzza (UD) has signed a special document aimed at sustainable development in key activity of orienteering .
PEFC certification is now a reality for several wooded areas of Veneto and Trentino , including the forests of Gallio (VI) and Lavarone (TN ), which will be the scene of the global challenges of the next July.
Aware of the crucial contribution that a discipline such as orienteering can also lead in communicating the important values ??of environmental sustainability, FISO and PEFC have decided to cooperate in particular to provide a complete information on both the discipline of orienteering that the management process sustainable forest and wood products.
PEFC Italy in the next few months will be alongside the FISO and the Organizing Committee of the 2014 WOC and WTOC creating informational materials to learn more about certified forest areas in which competitions are held . Next we will talk about environmental education for sustainable forest management in some interventions that organizers are planning in local schools that will host the WOC and WTOC 2014.
In addition PEFC Italy will help the organizers in the adoption of a series of good practice purchase , choosing products and manufacturers that rely on brand PEFC, with an eye to the territory and to local producers and a reduction of CO2 emissions into the environment.
Together PEFC and FISO will also organize a press tour where you can "touch " the great educational value that the practice of orienteering plays , as well as allowing you to explore the theme of the importance of forest certification .
The environment thanks you.
