Interview de l'éco-acteur
A French champion of mountain bike Orienteering courses on many occasions, Christine also participated in the world championship of this discipline in Fontainebleau in 2002. For 5 years, she was also a member of the French team. As a sports instructor in the Air Force, she was the coordinator of a S Professional Aptitude Patent for assistant technical presenters (BAPAAT) and trained trainers at the Joint Sports School (NSDC) in orienteering. In 2011, Christine created "Cartographie et Orientation" to make her passion known to children (from the age of 7), as well as teenagers, seniors, employees, and associations, a very heterogeneous public. This discipline requires precision and patience, which are found in the very professional layout of the maps that she creates.
What is an orienteering course ?
Walking of with a mountain bike, the goal is to make a circuit as quickly as possible by means of tags on a chosen path, using a map and possibly a compass.
In order to promote its development, the approach is playful and evolutionary, so that practitioners feel safe. This discipline creates self-confidence and creates a new relationship with the space, the environment that surrounds us. It is also the medium to convey many messages to promote the protection of nature.
What services do you offer ?
I offer services for groups, such the organization of a birthday party at the Buttes Chaumont park in Paris. I mapped the park and offered an orientation course that was both fun and educational. For the inauguration of a new commercial building, I also created an orientation course so that the employees can very easily locate places.
My services are also for companies to break up hierarchies, bring staff closer together, etc.
How do you collaborate with the Biosphere Ecotourism network ?
In many ways, but I am notably a temporary provider with Top Loisirs. I also created a map and designed a permanent orientation course for the Ile de Loisirs Buthiers.
