Together we aim to develop regional strategies and plans to align our value proposition with Member Organisations (MO) needs, interests and priorities; and work together to promote and expand Girl Guiding/Girl Scouting within the Region and in our MO's. We will use the conference to share best practices, to learn from each other and make new connections. We will create policies and commit to actions to better the movement and the Girl Guiding/Girl Scouting in Europe region.
