The European Scout Region of WOSM and the Europe Region WAGGGS are launching this Renewed Call for Bids to host The Academy 2017 due to the withdrawal of the sole bid received following the original call.

The Academy is a joint event of WOSM and WAGGGS working in partnership at European level, with key participation of volunteers and staff from both the Europe Region WAGGGS and the European Scout Region. Interested associations, NSOs or MOs, are invited to declare their interest to hosting this event by submitting a short paper (the bid) in reponse to the attached Joint Ciruclar.

The proposals will be submitted to the Joint Committees of WOSM and WAGGGS in Europe during their meeting in November 2016 to enable a full and effective application for funding to be presented to the Erasmus+ programme and other funding sources for the spring deadline in February 2017. Such an application needs time for partner agreements to be compiled and signed and other administrative tasks. The deadline for applications is Friday 28 Ocotber 2016, by mid-day, 12noon, CET.
