Being part of the project „World youth meets Orienteering in Antalya!”, the exchange was organized by Kanyon Youth and Outdoor Sports Club. The main topic was Orienteering, a competitive sport about being the fastest one in finding your way around with a map and compass, and, of course, your own sense of orientation. The participants were first introduced to the basics of this sport, and in the final days a competition was organized in the city center of Antalya.

The participants found a new meaning for practicing sport, that of learning about new cultures from the other people they practice it with. It was also a good way to develop communication skills between people coming from different cultures, in a competitive and also intercultural environment.
