The Academy

Over 140 participants enjoyed 5 days of interesting workshops and a lot of fun at the 2011 Academy, organised jointly by the WOSM - European Region and European Region WAGGGS. The event took place in the inspiring city of Paris from October 28 to November 1. Participants from all around Europe had the choice between 22 sessions, all related to the overall theme of the event "Growth through Quality". Some of the sessions were dealing with the issue of volunteering, especially those on:

• Recruitment, management and retention of adults

• Advocacy and value of volunteering

• Development and recognition of skills learned through Scouting

• Mentoring and Coaching

• Reaching out to volunteers from immigrant groups

• Lifelong Learning/active ageing in Scouting

This year's Academy provided great learning experience, space for exchange of knowledge and best practices, but was also used for a lot of fun during the sessions and after the official programme. The hosts from Scouts et Guides de France organized a funny game to discover Paris by using mobile phone technology.

The Academy was extensively followed by Scouts and Guides through social media networks.
