About the Academy 2021

Join us and explore new frontiers this Autumn at

The Academy 2021!


The Academy is a unique Scout and Guide event designed to enable participants to get high quality training and networking opportunities around the core priorities of the European Regions of WAGGGS and WOSM.

The story

The 2021 event is set in a world where Nature is being destroyed and the survival of the planet as we know it is at risk.  In order to survive, the human race needs to quickly establish a community on a planet by exploring into outer space. This is also an opportunity to build the society we are looking for avoiding the mistakes from the past.  

Each peer group will be a crew, with their own spaceship hub.  Their crew mission will be to complete a wide range of training activities in order to gain key resources to keep their crew alive (water, food, fuel)  and mission on track.  Each participant will also have a set of personal missions with a view to encourage networking.

We invite you to watch this event teaser to further reinforce the story!

Your mission

The event is open to anyone holding a role at national level in a WAGGGS or WOSM Association to join a crew. This includes staff members and volunteers, ranging from members of working groups up to Chief Commissioners.  Most Associations are likely to send participants that hold positions in specific areas of work including management (as Commissioners or board members), education or training (those responsible for programme/education/training), communication or representation (for instance in branding or advocacy).

Time & place

This year we are changing the format of the event to allow for more flexible participation in a gamified way. 

The event will run from 27th October  to 7th November and participation will be flexible throughout the event using an immersive platform to create the enriching Academy experience, all from the comfort of your own home.
