Preparations already underway for the WSPU 7th General Assembly!
Representatives of the Scout Association of Japan (SAJ) came to Korea to discuss preparations of the 7th General Assembly of the World Scout Parliamentary Union (WSPU), which is due to take place in Japan in 2013. The SAJ representatives met with representatives of Korea Scout Association (KSA), as well as members of its sister organization, the Korea Scout Parliamentary Association (KSPA), which acts as the Secretariat of WSPU.
The main purpose of the meeting was to share information for the organization of the 7th General Assembly, which is expected to gather many Scout parliamentarians from around the world for discussions centered around the topics of Scouting and Youth, such as national youth legislation and youth participation in the decision-making process, among others.
The experience gained by KSA and KSPA during the preparation of the 6th GA, included various areas, such as planning, logistics and marketing. However, participants of the meeting also eagerly discussed the best structure and composition of the event organization committee, as well as budget and sponsorship matters.
This meeting will certainly mark the beginning of a close partnership, in order to ensure the smooth preparation of this next General Assembly.
SAJ will also be the host of the next (23rd) World Scout Jamboree, which will take place in July-August 2015. In anticipation of this huge event, a Pre-23rd WSJ will be organized in 2013, as part of the 30th Asia-Pacific Regional Scout Jamboree and the 16th Nippon (National) Jamboree.
