(WSBERO/Geneva) – As part of its efforts to further develop its contacts with external organisations having consultative status with the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and in line with relevant objectives set by the current Regional Scout Plan, the European Scout Committee and the World Buddhist Scout Brotherhood (WBSB) have been working together to prepare an information package, which may be of use to NSOs and NSAs.

Buddhism is not a major faith in Europe and in the Buddhist community the majority of people tends to be have an immigrant background, having left home countries where Buddhism is more prevalent. Others may have converted to Buddhism.

We hope that the Information Package will be of interest and use. In case you need further support or advice on specific matters contained in the package, please do not hesitate to contact the European Regional Office.
