Scouting and the Financial and Economic Crisis

Every organisation, no matter how big or small, should be prepared for the influence the financial crisis will have on them.

While business organisations are likely to be affected the most by the economic crisis, other non-profit organisations will undoubtedly feel suffer as well. Here we take a look at how Scouting, as a part of society is affected, what we can do to minimise this impact on the movement, look for benefits in it and create strategies to see ourselves through it.

Working Together

An insight into how the European Scout Region operates and their aims.

This Euro.Scout.Doc details the plans and strategies of the European Scout Region, as set forth by the European Scout Conference in 2001. It details how the Region operates - with the European Scout Committee, working groups and office support. It lists the aims and objectives of the Regional Plan for 2001-2004 and the Action Plan to bring the Region up to the Centenary in 2007.

Crisis – how to respond to the socio-economic challenges

We are very pleased that our Euro.Scout.Doc on Scouting and the Financial and Economic Crisis published in 2009 - inspired our friends at Corpo Nacional de Escutas (CNE) to translate the document into
Portuguese.

This time the roles are reversed and a document called Crisis published by CNE has been translated into English and French, and is based largely on the original Portuguese text.
We are pleased to attach Crisis – how to respond to the socio-economic challenges so that the advice and thinking can be shared more widely.

All Different, All Equal - Diversity toolkit

The WAGGGS and WOSM European Regions have released a Diversity Toolkit. The information and training resources in this toolkit can be used and adapted by all levels of the movement.

National Board members may find the Diversity Checklist useful for reviewing the organizational structure and policies of the Association.

The templates and practical approaches provided in the toolkit may be helpful in planning initiatives to introduce Guiding and Scouting to new and unexplored areas of your community.

Them ’n Us - A toolkit on diversity in Scouting

In order to illustrate ethnic diversity, this book includes perspectives on ethnicity, religion, culture, Scout culture and outdoor life. It is an addition to literature already xisting on diversity but excludes issues like sexuality, functional impairment, social diversity and gender equality. This book presents some facts on various cultures and religions. It is good to know facts but nevertheless we advise you not to take these facts for granted. People are different – we are individuals first and foremost.
