Working weekend in Slovenia

1st Jan 2009

In June, the Motivation and Promotion Unit met in Slovenia and worked on some interesting materials.

A Euro.Scout.Doc was completed on Motivation in Scouting and this will soon be available on scout.org. The document discusses what motivation is and why it is important to Scouting. It looks at motivation at the different levels in Scouting and is a good resource for Leaders on self-motivation and also on motivating others.

During the weekend the same Unit began working on a document on diversity in recruitment. It is based on different resource materials and personal experiences. The material will be used during the Scout Academy in October.

Work also continued on another Euro.Scout.Doc. with the Resources Unit busy on one on capitalisation. The final Euro.Scout.Doc on capitalisation should be published in the autumn.

Finally, another group from the Resources Unit produced the first draft of an internal publications document and progressed with a Scout term glossary and publication inventory. Both the glossary and inventory are aimed to be useful online tools for Scouts and NSAs. The glossary will detail and explain terms used within Scouting and the Region. The inventory will better archive formal publications from the European Scout Region, WOSM and individual NSAs. The aim is to make the resources more accessible to Scouts, so they can easier find and work with appropriate material.
