The Outdoor Compass

Strategic dialogue using the Outdoor Compass

Dialogue tool

The Outdoor Compass gives you an overview of the key elements in the development of an outdoor culture. The elements are divided into the 7 axes of the compass, each of which has a number of levels.

When the development of outdoor culture is discussed between e.g. teams and management, the outdoor compass can make visible the content, scope, prioritisation and coherence of the different actions/initiatives. Tjek tjek tjek tjek

From development to embedding

The Outdoor Compass is particularly suitable as a framework for strategic decisions and concrete actions. Once the compass has been developed, targets and signs for specific activities are further developed to focus on the concrete effects on the target group. The compass is regularly revisited in follow-up compass dialogues.
