The World Orienteering Championships ( WOC ) and World Trail Orienteering Championships ( WTOC ) will be held in Trentino and Veneto. The highlands of Folgaria,
Lavarone, Luserna in Trentino and Asiago 7 Comuni in Veneto are areas with wonderful landscapes and natural reserves.
A responsible use of natural resources and protection of the ecosystem is a prerequisite for sustainable development. The organizing committee is committed to use environmental resources in a sustainable way. So we will adopt responsible organizational procedures in order to protect and preserve our forests.
Orienteering is by definition a sport of the woods. Some of the venues are in the forests in Gallio (loc. Campomulo ) and Lavarone, and they are PEFC certified. The sport and sustainability have once again found a reason to proceed on a common path: promoting a greater environmental responsibility and a proper land management.
We are aware of the crucial contribution that a discipline as orienteering can also lead in communicating the important values of sustainability. So we will also use this opportunity to provide you with complete information on the sustainability of orienteering as the process of sustainable forest management and wood.
Specifically, we will make sure to implement the following responsible measures addressed to the organizers, athletes and any other participant.
GUIDELINES FOR THE ORGANIZERS
The conservation project consists of a series of guidelines addressed to all the organizers. These are the guidelines that should be respected in both national and international events:

INFORMATION FOR PUBLIC AND ATHLETES
The project involves the propagation of information about environement-friendly policies for both spectators and athletes. In particular, we will offer:
- Interventions in schools;

- Info point.
A committee will evaluate the event on the basis of the project objectives to be achieved in the environmental field, measurable and verifiable in progress and at the end of the manifestations of the same. Our goal is to minimize the impact of the event on the environment: to offset emissions of CO2 which will be produced during the various stages of organization and running of the event.
At the end of the events a special report will be published.Download sustainability environmental projectDownload protocollo FISO-PEFC
