RoverNet – VentureNet Network Meetings 2019 of the European Scout Region

Screen Shot 2019-03-15 at 11.47.25

One of the main conclusions from the previous RoverNet and VentureNet Meetings was the need and desire of Venture and Rover Commissioners to continue to have exchange opportunities and to continue to meet regularly as a network.

As a result, in cooperation with the Scout Association of Croatia, the European Scout Region will be organising a meeting for National Commissioners for Rovers and Venture Scout age sections in Croatia in spring 2019. While it is considered one event, some of the programme and the content of the meetings are separate and different.

RoverNet is following a long series of European initiatives defined for this age section (Roverway, Agora, youth exchanges, youth empowerment, etc.) will try to build on existing projects and programme frameworks.

VentureNet aims to consolidate the network and explore the possibilities for future cooperation, potential partnerships and Regional support initiatives/frameworks.

The 2019 edition of RoverNet – VentureNet is scheduled to take place in Zagreb, Croatia, from 9 to 12 May 2019.

=> For more details, including a link to the registration form, please refer to Regional Circular 15 2019 (available in English only).
