Hi, I am Hans, 64 years old from Giessen, Germany. I am retired and work in a voluntary capacity as Director of our Scouting Foundation. When I learned of this phenomenal project, I was immediately convinced, this activity is not just for youngsters but for all Scouts young at heart united in BP’s believe to leave the world a little bit better than we found it.
Not just as a result of the current political situation, but in my mind, tearing down mental walls between East and West is of equal importance to physical walls coming down. During our various meetings I already felt the spirit of being part of the world’s largest Youth Organization and its mission of peace and friendship among nations and its people.
