Important update: 2020 Scout & Guide Academy

We’re excited to announce that  ‘The Academy 2020’ will be a special, online addition

Active citizenship has a whole new meaning in 2020, Scouting & Guiding is more visible than ever, we utilised our strengths and turned new challenges into new opportunities. We watched our communities change and evolve in the uniqueness of 2020, pushing us all outside of our comfort zones, but highlighting our resilience and the opportunities within connectedness; so how can we share, learn and adapt within our Member Organisations, to emerge into our ‘new normal’, stronger, more inclusive and more sustainable than before.

Play your part in Recalibrating our compass!

Responding to the needs and realities of all our members, volunteers and MO’s, is the core business of The Academy and the decision to move online will ensure we are still able to provide the familiar high quality learning event while limiting implications related to travel, safety and adapting to a ‘new normal’.

The theme for this unique online experience is ‘Recalibrating our compass’; let’s turn challenges into opportunity, take charge of the future and define resilience. 

Preparations for this year’s Academy have begun and the event will be held online, from 4th – 8th  of November 2020. More information can be seen across the website, including the Learning Path experience outlined for this online event. More information will be shared with Member Organisations and international commissioners in the coming days- watch this space! 

Meet you in the clouds soon!

The Academy 2022 is supported and co-financed by the European Parliament after a successful grant application submitted by the European Scout Region under the call of the European Year of Youth grants (EP-COMM-SUBV-2022-EYY).
