Today we started the sessions. There were topics that participants were able to discover from different perspectives: Building Your Monitoring and Evaluating System, Gender and Diversity, Leading Change Successfully, Quality Educational Programme for Rovers and Rangers and a lot of others were sessions that help participants get new ideas and explore different solutions to their challenges.

In the evening there was the opening ceremony! The volunteers brought a giant sail that represents The Academy sailing to new experiences and knowledge. They sang both national organisations’ anthems and then we were greeted by chief scout of the ZTS and representative of ZSKSS. Petra and Matthias, representativesof WAGGGS and WOSM, said some words and named every country present at The Academy. The content team, that is led by Irini, also attended.

At the end participants were invited to play the Scavenger Hunt.

It was an amazing day. Looking forward to the next days of The Academy.
