Hello! My name is Máire, I am from Ireland and am looking forward to joining the Academy this year. I have been involved in Scouting for over twenty years. I am a WOSM Consultant for Good Governance, Growth, and Youth Engagement service areas. I am passionate about youth empowerment and have facilitated sessions at previous Academies on the topic. More recently my volunteering has focused on working methods, continuous improvement, and exploring more innovative and inclusive decision-making practices. My professional background is in education and psychology. I believe that learning is a lifelong process and I hope to maximise the unique educational opportunities which the Academy has to offer. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
