How we work
A new operational plan, outlining the priorities of the Region, is discussed at the conference. The Conference also elects six volunteers to the Europe Committee who put its plans into action, working closely with the Europe Region staff, based in Brussels. Meet the Europe Committee WAGGGS and the staff of the Europe Office.
To help the Europe Committee and the Europe Office develop Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting in the Region, three different volunteer groups have been established. Each group has a particular focus to support the implementation of the plan.
The Mentors and Countries group
The Mentors and Countries Group assists the development of strategies to support associations who wish to develop Girl Guiding/Girl Scouting in their country.
External Representatives Group
Members of the External Representatives group represent WAGGGS at European conferences, seminars and in the statutory youth structures at European level, following and contributing to discussions and policy developments on European youth policy and a range of topics relevant to Girl Guiding/Girl Scouting, including recognition of non-formal education, volunteering or the achievement of the MDGs.
Trainers and Events Working Group
The Trainers and Events group aims at supporting the planning and delivery of regional activities and projects.
