The 2019 Helen Storrow Seminar
The Helen Storrow Seminar gives young people from around the world the chance to connect on issues they care about and take the lead as agents of change in their communities.
This special programme has been held at Our Chalet, WAGGGS’ World Centre in Switzerland, since 1986. In the heart of the Swiss Alps,
this adventure brings Girl Guides and Girl Scouts closer to
nature, explores the environmental issues they face in their communities and inspires them to protect the environment.
