Make Gender Equality a Reality!


The Europe Region WAGGGS is very excited and have great pleasure in presenting our latest resources on Gender.  These include the  booklet “Your Chance to Balance the Gender Imbalance” (in English and French) and a website on Gender Equality in Guiding and Scouting associations! (

These resources have been produced as part of the Stand by me Project which included a series of activities organised by the Europe Region WAGGGS from 2012 to 2013, all contributing to supporting and providing youth leaders, young people and Member Organisations with knowledge, skills and attitudes to examine the issues around gender equality, and explore how they can help ensure that equal participation of young women and men truly becomes a reality across Europe.

The project has been funded by the Youth in Action programme of the European Commission.
