Call for hosting Roverway 2016

Closing ceremony at Roverway 2009

As advised earlier this year, the European Scout Committee and the Europe Committee WAGGGS, have agreed to stage the following edition of RoverWay in 2016 to avoid clashes with other events. They are confident that there is much to be gained for young people, for the Member Organisations and National Scout Organisations, and for the two Regions. We wish to stimulate the provision of opportunities for young people to share their own views and dreams, to discover other people’s ways of life, to build things together, to try new skills and live adventures in a small international community.


With this message, we ask WAGGGS Member Organisations and/or WOSM National Scout Organisations to host RoverWay in 2016.
The attached document outlines the essential information needed for potential hosts. The candidature document should include all information considered relevant for the consideration of the Joint Committee. This may include proposals for: motto, main educational activities and experiences, venue, dates, motivation, etc.


The event is usually scheduled during the second half of July or the first half of August, when most European countries have their school holidays.
