At the 15th European Guide and Scout Conference held in Melsomvik, Norway, from 17-21 June 2016, representatives of the Guide and Scout associations in the European Regions of WOSM and WAGGGS recommended that “the Joint Committee develops and implements a third annex to the Memorandum of Understanding of the European Regions of WAGGGS and WOSM, outlining the joint approach to external relations” (cf. recommendation 15EGSC/6, published in Joint Conference Document 6).

Volunteers engaged in relevant working groups of the European Scout Region of WOSM and the Europe Region WAGGGS have worked together over the past months to develop the recommended Annex III to the Memorandum of Understanding of the European Regions of WAGGGS and WOSM, which has since been adopted by the Joint Committee.

Joint Communication 05 2018 presents you with the new Annex III, which now forms integral part of the Memorandum of Understanding of the European Regions of WAGGGS and WOSM.
