Syddansk Turisme, Denmark, working with stakeholder group and sub partner SVUF.
WHO WAS MEANT TO DO IT?
Local communities, families, children, young people and disabled people.
WHAT DID THEY DO?
Activities were planned in 2010 on the following preliminary initiatives by arranging:
- Pre-meetings with local initiators
- Research on outdoor themes
- Budgeting and planning schemes
HOW DID THEY DO IT?
In order to ensure a high level of activity during the 2010 the following goals were set:
- Book / “Play in the Nature”: For inspiration on how to motivate families to spend quality time in the nature in 2010.
- GPS for outdoor use and Geocoins: For more knowledge and preparation of a South Danish Geocaching Event in 2010.
- Giveaway Gosh: For use at special events during the year 2010.
HOW MANY PARTICIPATED?
No data available.
DID IT WORK?
The planning and research kick-started the activities.
WAS IT SUCCESSFUL?
1. Book / “Play in the Nature”
Research on the topic was carried out through books and internet and resulted in involvement and innovation in the activities. For example, the development of the backpack was a result from the reading and the above mentioned book and a paper from National Heritage on the topic (see CMI for Backpack Development).
2. GPS for outdoor use and Geocoins
The preparation phase was prolonged due to the complexity of the activity – this activity would therefore continue in 2011. Local tourism offices requested that the event be postponed.
The activity was more complex than anticipated. Each coin needed to be registered and its “lifecycle” monitored – this task was beyond the current activities that can be carried out by a public funded organisation. Also, the coordinator for the activities in South Denmark was ill (see CMI for Geo-coin Distribution).
3. Giveaway Gosh
For use at special events during the year 2010. The planning of an activity needed more research and was postponed to 2011 (see CMI for Headneckers for Schoolchildren).
There was an on-going dialogue with the representatives from the local tourism offices in South West Jutland, and the museums and outdoor recreation organisations. In particular, the island of Rømø has been very active and involved in developing new activities.
