Organisers

Department of Turistika, Outdoor Sports and Outdoor Education, Charles University in Prague has been preparing outdoor programmes for students of the Charles University, Faculty of Physical Education and Sport for already more than 50 years. The department cooperates with schools, sport organisations and companies in the Czech Republic as well as abroad, takes part in scientific programmes and international projects in the field of outdoor education. It also cooperates with Czech outdoor sports associations, e.g. Czech Mountaineering Association, in training instructors. Next fields of interest are cycling, orienteering, ropes courses, games and exercise in nature. The members of the department publish regularly in high-ranked journals.
