Hi! I am Raül and I am currently working on Educational Methods at the World Scout Bureau – Europe Support Centre, Geneva. I come from the nicest city in the world, Barcelona, and after going through the Youth Programme of my home Association, I became a Cub Scout Leader in my local group. After some years as a Leader in different sections, I went on to hold other responsibilities such as Cub Scout Regional Commissioner, Trainer, Training Regional Commissioner and International Commissioner in Minyons Escoltes i Guies de Catalunya (MEG).
Later, I was elected International Commissioner of the Catalan Federation of Scouting and Guiding (FCEG), a position I held until my enrolment in the Bureau, almost five years ago. The Academy is a very keen event to me, I was a facilitator at the Academy in Porto, coordinated the Academy in Cyprus and was part of the support team of the Academies in Hungary and North Macedonia. I want to do my best to make this year’s Academy an amazing experience for all participants.
