Dear Walking Friends from near and far, Finally the time has come. IVV-Europe has a new homepage. I´m looking forward to your visit on the internet. Enjoy reading and browsing. You will also have good access to helpful and current information prepared for you. When preparing the pages, it was important for us that you will find the information easily and with as few „clicks“ as possible.
Our goal is to inform you about the current status of Volkssport events in Europe. This is the beginning, and we want to make the homepage into a broad information platform. We depend on the help of all member countries and direct member clubs. I warmly recommend the integrated search for events – a support for your weekly walking plan.
My special thank goes to the President of IVV-France, FFSP, Mr. Guy Borsenberger for assuming the cost and particularly to FFSP Vice President Fabrice Wagner for the construction of the homepage. This would not have been possible without these voluntary commitments.
Visit us regularly, it is worth it!
We are happy to receive your feedback and ideas for improvement.
For this, please contact:

See you on a walk in Europe.
Uwe Kneibert
President IVV - Europe

IVV Digital Meeting in Trier:

Posted by on Tuesday, September 19 @ 10:41:51 CEST (0 reads)

Is digital hiking the future in the IVV?
This question and how digital technology can be used for hiking in the next few years were the subject of a workshop of the International People's Sports Association on 4 November 2017 in Trier. Invited by the IVV - Europe, 22 representatives from 10 countries took part in this event.
The IVV had formed a working group on the subject of "IVV digital" at the Rio 2016 delegates' conference. Members of the working group are: Georges Kintziger (Luxembourg), Michael Mallmann (Germany), Walter Motz (Germany) Peter Schamaitis (Germany) Fabrice Wagner (France).
Among several applicants, the company Hahn IT was awarded the contract to develop a concept with regard to the digitization of hiking sports. Together with the working group "IVV-Digital", the company created a load and specification book. This contains a complete and detailed specification of all requirements for the software project from the point of view of the company Hahn IT, as well as the specifications of the IVV how and when this will be implemented.
Messrs. And Kühn und Mitte - both from Hahn IT - presented the project in conjunction with a PowerPoint presentation to all those present. Her presentation was divided into the following areas:
1. What is it about?
2. What is the benefit for the IVV?
3. What is our solution?
4. How high do we estimate costs and time?
5. Why is HIT the right partner?
For the individual points there were numerous questions from the participants and it developed a lively discussion.
At the end of the session, the national associations assessed the project and its plans in short statements. It was important for everyone how the project could be financed. The IVV - Europe will work with the IVV-Digital working group to establish contacts with the EU in order to find out whether funding for such a project can be obtained. The majority of the national associations present were in favor of continuing the project and implementing the digitization of hiking. However, everyone agreed that over a longer period of time, the old and the new systems will run side by side.
