navegacao_Campinas01Training class on navigation and use of the compass. The event was held in the district Joaquim Egidio – Campinas, where participants also learned to read a map.

Participants learned about the creation and the use of the compass and about the interpretation of a map. To complete the adventure, they enjoyed a tour through the beautiful landscape of Pico das Cabras.

We believe that in the era of GPS a compass is a somewhat obsolete tool. However, in an emergency situation it can be very useful to go from one place to another without many resources.

In current times, as we are living in highly urbanized environments, learning how to use the compass can serve as motivation to bring us closer to nature.
