Better City, Better Life — Launch of the 2019 Cross City World Tour Xiamen

 

More than 3,000 citizens from the ages of 4 to 60 took part in the Cross City World Tour Xiamen on April 14. Divided into 600 teams, the participants had to complete various tasks along one of the 10 routes by walking or taking public transport.

Beginning in Xiamen in 2016, the Cross City World Tour Xiamen competition, originating from World Cities Day, is jointly organized by Shanghai Coordination Center of World Cities Day and Pico Sports.

Cross City World Tour is similar to a treasure hunt in the city. Each mixed-gender team is made up of five members. Each route is connected with five coordinates, and team members have to collaborate on and complete tasks that involve thinking, creativity, and physical strength while searching for the next coordinates. The final ranking is based on the completion time.

Participants can enjoy themselves in the series of tasks, which include putting on firefighting gear, go-kart racing and puzzles. Many enterprises use this competition for their team building activities.

Cross City World Tour is targeted at the general public, especially young peopleand it emphasizes participation, teamwork, common good and interaction. The different routes help participants learn more about Xiamen from different perspectives, and better learn about the beauty and spirit of the city.

In the years since its launch, the competition has won lots of support from hundreds of organizations in the city and many companies have applied to be the coordinates every year. According to Roy Luo, General Manager of Pico Sports, “Like a marathon, the city orienteering challenge goes out of the playground and into the city. A marathon is a track of 42.195 kilometers, while the city orienteering challenge has many different coordinates so as to a offer better experience for the participants with consolidated urban resources.” Roy said that the city orienteering challenge can be replicated and the platform can be used to create many other business models. Xiamen is the first stop for this season and according to the organizer, the event will also be held in 6 to 8 other cities such as Shanghai, Hefei, Taiyuan, Chengdu, Luoyang and others.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
