In september, we will be leaving Belgium for 10 days to go to the WAGGGS 36th World Conference in New-Delhi.
We ae 8 young people, each member of one of the 5 Guiding and Scouting association from Belgium and we will represent GSB, Guiding and Scouting Belgium at the World Conference.
But what is WAGGGS and what is the World Conference ?
WAGGGS stands for World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. It’s the largest voluntary movement dedicated to girls and young women in the world. WAGGGS represents ten million girls and young women from 146 countries, and one of this countries is Belgium.
To explain what’s the World Conference, let’s quote the WAGGGS website, because it explains it very well :
The World Conference is the principal decision-making body of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts and it convenes in the last year of each triennium.
So at the end of each triennium, all the 146 member organizations come together to look back at the last triennium and to prepare the next one.
So in september, we will prepare the future of our movement for the three next years.
Exciting, isn’t it ?
