Regional Networks Meeting #ScoutIAR
Yesterday began the Meetings of the Regional Networks: Youth Programme, Adults in Scouting, Institutional Development and Youth Network. With the participation of 75 people from 16 NSOs.
These events had a simultaneous opening in which Rafe Lucado and Luis Silvetri “Tute” gave the welcoming words in behalf of the Interamerican Committee, followed by Raul Arturo Sanchez Vaca, Regional Director of the WSB- IAR.
Then the networks continued to work together. Three sessions were held to review the status of implementation of the Interamerican policies: Youth Program, Institutional Development and Youth Participation, conducted by Mauricio Veayra, WSB-IAR Youth Programme Director; José Gabriel Criollo, WSB-IAR Institutional Development Director and Iliene Corsen, Youth Network Communicator.
The day ended with an "International Night", in which participants shared different exhibitions and cultural and gastronomic expressions of their countries.
Regional Networks are technical bodies that support the work of the Regional Office and provide assistance to the Interamerican Scout Committee; therefore their work is focus on the development of different products and document reviews.
Regional Networks will continue to work until Sunday June 14th; we are going to keep on posting ... Stay tuned!
