WHAT: Workshop for Orienteering Instructors / Coaches / Teachers

WHEN: 8-9-10 April 2022

WHERE: Kőszeg (Hungary)

WHO: 5 Instructors / Coaches / Teachers

Objective & background

In Italy and especially in the whole of Europe, the lack of doing exercise – especially in a natural environment – has resulted in the increase of obesity in children and youth (major health problem in developed countries) and in the increased level of inactivity and the incorrect use of old and new technology. But the sport itself is not enough. The progressive detachment from nature experienced by children growing up in cities can cause nature-deficit disorder. In his “Last Child in the Wood” book, the researcher Richard Louv finds that children prefer watching TV rather than parks and outdoor games. They are even afraid of playing outdoors, so they get sick of various diseases, including allergies, obesity, behavioral disorders, attention deficit, hyperactivity, depression and some manifestations of autism. So, what can we do?
