This Regional Circular provides you with an overview on how Scouts in the European Scout Region are currently accessing Erasmus+ funding opportunities.

In view of the renewal of the Erasmus+ programme from 2020, the year 2018 will be key in the process of defining the future of Erasmus+. This circular therefore provides you with information on the future of this programme and how National Scout Organisations (NSOs) can join our advocacy efforts for a larger and more suitable Erasmus+ programme.

Finally, this circular introduces you to the newly established EU European Solidarity Corps programme and other European funding opportunities.

CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: European Scout Communications Forum 2018 (Regional Circular 05 2018)


The European Scout Region of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), in collaboration with the Estonian Scout Association, is pleased to invite you to the European Scout Communications Forum 2018, which will be held from 31 May to 3 June 2018 in Tallinn, Estonia.

The topic of Public Image of Scouting has not been strongly present in the plans of the European Scout Region for some years. The European Scout Conference in Norway in 2016 changed that and decided that communications should become one of the important issues of the 2016 – 2019 triennium. Also, the World Scout Conference in Baku repeatedly confirmed the Public Image of Scouting as one of the key areas of development. The European Scout Communications Forum 2018 will be the most important event of the Region dealing with this topic.
