Scouting Netherland hosted representatives from National Scout Associations interested in a designing the project on learning in Scouting.
Scouting Netherland, in close cooperation with the WOSM - European Region, invited National Scout Organisations to join a Europe-wide project to stimulate recognition of learning within Scouting. At the European Scout Conference representatives from interested organisations met and agreed on the basics of the project which was designed later in the summer.
The aim of the whole project is to promote, enhance and facilitate ideas of recognition of learning in Scout organisations in Europe, by initiating and bringing together a network of international project teams from associations from Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, France, Netherlands, Portugal, Serbia, Spain, Slovenia and Sweden.
The aims of the preparatory meeting were to exchange ideas and methods, make plans and set goals for each project team. Project managers from Belgium, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain and committed team members from Scouting Netherland spent three days sharing their experiences in recognition of learning in Scouting and making concrete agreements for the next year. The result of the meeting is the project that will be submitted to the National Youth Agency in the Netherlands and various individual project ideas to work on.
