WAGGGS Call for Volunteers to join the Finance Working Group

Finance working group - call for volunteers

The 13th European Guide Conference recommended that the Europe Committee WAGGGS establish a working group to report on the way the voluntary contribution is calculated and funded.  The Extraordinary Meeting at the Regional Gathering at the WAGGGS World Conference in July 2011 decided that this group should continue its mandate until the 14th European Guide Conference in 2013.

Individual members of WAGGGS member organisations interested in contributing to this work of the Region while gaining knowledge and skills that can strengthen their volunteer and professional profile are called to send us their application.

More information is available here in English and French
Expressions of interest have to reach the Europe Office WAGGGS by the 16/09/2011.

32 countries hosting awareness raising seminars on non-discrimination and equality targeted at civil society organisations

The project “Awareness rising in the areas of non-discrimination and equality targeted at civil society organizations” aims to design specific training material and activities for NGOs in order to help strengthen their capacity to deal with non – discrimination and equality.

The main purpose of the project is to improve the impact and effectiveness of civil society organizations regarding to the implementation of equality and non-discrimination legislation and policy through their programmes and activities.

This project could therefore support your national organisation/association to design, renew, and strengthen the programme or strategy to be more open. In the Regional Scout Plan, NSOs and NSAs in Europe expressed their interest to work more with the Region on Embracing Change.
