Network Gathering of Community Leaders
This May in Singapore, the Messengers of Peace Initiative will bring together over 50 of Scouting’s social media and web-communication leaders as part of developing our global Network for Messengers of Peace. Functioning as community leaders and multipliers, this core group will oversee the evolution of a truly new, innovative and inspirational Network for peace. A primary innovation will be a new interface with global Social Media Sites where Scouts already meet, communicate and share ideas.
Central Office Support Team
Supporting regional implementation of the Messengers of Peace Support Fund and Network, the Global Projects Team based in Geneva includes Peter Illig ( ), Patrik Hedljung ( ) and Abir Koubaa ( ).
