The Network of Scouts and Guides representatives in National Youth Councils

In order to assist in the implementation of resolution Society 7 adopted at the 8th European Guide and Scout Conference the Europe Region WAGGGS and  WOSM – European Region organized a meeting in 1996 for those Scouts and Guides involved in influencing Youth Policy on behalf of their National Association in a National Youth Council and those representing European Guiding or Scouting in the European Youth Structures.

As a result of that first meeting it was decided to organize a similar meeting annually, which became the Network Meeting of Scouts and Guides representatives in National Youth Councils.

The network aims to:

  • Provide training for National and European representatives
  • Discuss issues of mutual relevance and other important topics
  • Strengthen existing and form new networks to develop the influencing role of Guiding and Scouting
  • Co-ordinate the approach to Youth Policy in Europe
  • Motivate participants for further involvement in Youth structures
