Peace Education training

Regional Riga, Letonia

Building on our commitment at the European Scout Conference to promote and strengthen peace education for young people in Europe, we are happy to announce this call for participants for a training opportunity on Peace Education in Scouting held in Riga, Latvia, from 21 to 26 March 2023.

The training is the first one of its kind within the European Scout Region, aiming to gather experts on the range of topics that fall under the umbrella of peace education, and together learn how to bridge Scouting with the challenges facing youth today.

Scouts have always been active in peace building. The last year in particular, we witnessed a strong commitment from Scouts in their frontline support for those fleeing Ukraine. The NSOs of Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, Czechia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Moldova and Ukraine joined forces with UNICEF to ensure a stronger humanitarian response, supported by the European and Eurasia Scout Regions.
