The event is created by the International Orienteering Federation with the following goals:

Increasing the visibility and accessibility of orienteering to young people, increasing the number of participants both in the schools’ activities, as well and in the clubs’ activities in all countries of National Federations, helping teachers to implement orienteering in a fun and educational way and to get more new countries to take part in orienteering. 

World Orienteering Week was organized under the name World Orienteering Day until 2023.
