World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM)
The European Scout Region
Scouting is a global youth movement with over 40 million members worldwide, of whom more than 1.700.000 are active in the European Scout Region. The role of the European Scout Region is to support its 41 member National Scout Organisations (NSOs) and Accredited National Scout Organisations.
The European Scout Region is governed by the European Regional Conference and the European Scout Committee. It is supported by volunteers engaged in a number of regional working groups and project teams and by professionals working at the World Scout Bureau - European Regional Office.
How does the European Scout Region work?
The European Regional Conference adopts a Regional Scout Plan and the European Scout Committee implements it. The Regional Scout Plan is, in effect, the Region’s strategy. It is developed with input from National Scout Organisations and National Scout Associations that contribute to identifying priority areas of work, as well as relevant activities and objectives for the Region.
At the Conference, delegates from each National Scout Organisation also debate and adopt resolutions, which cover issues of importance not necessarily covered by the proposed Regional Scout Plan.
