The IOF’s Environment Commission has been dormant for some time, but now efforts are being made to revive it. A new chairman has been appointed, and work is underway to recruit new members and define its main tasks.
Einar Tommelstad, previously the president of the Norwegian Orienteering Federation, has agreed to lead the commission. He is joined by Eje Andersson from Sweden, as the first appointed members.
- We are very pleased that Einar has said yes to leading the Environment Commission, says IOF CEO Tom Hollowell. – Taking care of our natural environment and acting in a sustainable manner are deeply embedded in the IOFs values and strategic plan. We need a strong commission which can support our disciplines and organisers and this appointment is a key part of strengthening our sustainability activities.
