Beai fiienus in Scouting,
It gives me gieat pleasuie to piesent this seconu Annual
Repoit coveiing the peiiou fiom }uly 2u11 to }uly 2u12.
As pieviously piacticeu, the Annual Repoit is oui way of
pioviuing an oveiview of the piogiess being maue with the
implementation of the Regional Scout Plan anu the
Resolutions fiom the 2uth Euiopean Scout Confeience helu
in Biussels, Belgium, in 2u1u.
We aie fiimly of the view that it's impoitant to pioviue these
inteiim iepoits between confeiences, as they pioviue in full
tianspaiency, what youi electeu membeis have uone anu aie
uoing. In the piocess of ieviewing piogiess, it's motivating in
that it also highlights aieas of woik that still iequiie oui
close attention.
The yeai unuei ieview, as you will see in the following pages,
has been extiemely busy. We have woikeu haiu to
consoliuate the switch fiom 'factoiy to consultancy',
wheieby we have focusseu a significant amount of oui woik
on pioviuing tailoieu suppoit uiiect to NS0s¡NSAs acioss
Euiope, on a wiue iange of uevelopmental neeus.
0thei factois have hau an impact on oui opeiations. The
global economic situation has has hau anu will continue to
affect us foi some time. Bespite this, significant effoits have
been maue to iuentify efficiencies, secuie exteinal funuing
foi the Region as well as foi NS0s¡NSAs.
0ui commitment to woiking jointly with WAuuuS iemains,
but uiveiging appioaches, opeiational cycles as well as
iesouice allocation make this challenging. Bowevei, theie
aie some goou examples wheie joint events have been well
ieceiveu, incluuing The Acauemy
With one yeai to go until the 21st Euiopean Scout
Confeience in Beilin, ueimany, theie is still much to uo in
ueliveiing on the cuiient Regional Scout Plan, but we will
also take time to begin the piocess of piepaiing foi the next
tiiennium. Foi this, we will seek the input of NS0s¡NSAs
thiough the Euiopean Scout Symposium, which I woulu
encouiage you to attenu in eaily 2u1S. To assist oui thinking,
we will be ciiculating a uiscussion uocument in Becembei
2u12 to help NS0s¡NSAs help us in iuentifying the key issues
foi consiueiation in the coming tiiennium anu beyonu.
In closing, I woulu like to take this oppoitunity to thank my
colleagues on the Euiopean Scout Committee foi theii
commitment to the iole anu foi the suppoit that they have
pioviueu to NS0s¡NSAs as we seek to continue 'suppoiting
giowth in changing times'.
Theii woik woulu not be possible without the ueuication of
the piofessional suppoit in the Euiopean Regional 0ffice, the
wiuei suppoit fiom the many volunteeis in oui Woiking
uioups anu Coie uioups paiticulaily the Cooiuinatois, the
Euiopean Scout Founuation, colleagues in othei Regions anu
at woilu level, anu of couise, without the ongoing
encouiagement fiom NS0s¡NSAs... who iemain at the centie
of oui thinking in eveiything we uo.

This summei, I hau the oppoitunity to paiticipate in the
National }amboiee of the Scouts anu uuiues of Icelanu anu to
talk to theii iepiesentatives uuiing one of my Committee
contact visits to NS0s. I wanteu to take up this paiticulai visit
as a staiting line foi my iepoit, as it illustiates the key
elements, which in my opinion constitute a goou
collaboiation between the uiffeient levels of Scouting.
It was an exemplaiy camp, in the sense that it was open to all
bianches of Scouting, fiom Cubs to paients. Eveiybouy was
able to join in piogiamme activities foi theii age. These hau
been uesigneu following W0SN's global anu iegional
piogiamme guiuelines, while at the same time taking into
consiueiation the spiiit of }oint Woik with the Euiope
Region WAuuuS.
It ieminueu me that the woik anu effoits of the membeis of
the Euiopean Scout Committee neeu to iemain focuseu anu
on conciete activities oiganiseu foi oui membeis - the
chiluien anu young people. The iegional level is not heie foi
itself. We always have to uo oui planning anu aujust oui
woik so that the Region is playing its iole as seivice pioviuei
foi NS0s, NSAs anu the gioups on local level.
The NS0 in Icelanu, like the othei NS0s anu NSAs of couise,
is a goou example of best piactice foi collaboiation between
a national association anu the Euiopean level. Confionteu
with uifficulties in planning anu auult iesouices
management, the leaueiship of the Scouts anu uuiues of
Icelanu uiu not hesitate to ask the Region foi assistance.
Subsequently, a Tailoieu Suppoit Pioject was uevelopeu foi
anu with the Scouts anu uuiues of Icelanu. Anu some of the
suppoit within this TS Pioject was pioviueu by othei NS0s
anu NSAs. Neasuies, which hau been taken in Icelanu
following exchanges with othei NS0s anu NSAs have alieauy
shown an impact on membeiship figuies anu have positively
influenceu inteinal stiuctuies of the Scouts anu uuiues of
Icelanu.
Thus, suppoit offeieu by the Region can leau to goou iesults.
Bowevei, to achieve such success, this means that NS0s anu
NSAs contact the Region anu explain theii neeus. Anu it is
exactly what membeis may expect: ieceive taigeteu suppoit
ieplying to iuentifieu neeus of the association. 0f couise, it is
essential that NS0s anu NSAs feel sufficiently confiuent in
oiuei foi the Region to pioviue suppoit.
Buiing this past yeai, woik-loaueu but fascinating,
motivating anu cieating enthusiasm, the membeis of the
Euiopean Scout Committee iegulaily saw themselves
confionteu with pioblems of efficiency in the ueliveiy of
Tailoieu Suppoit piojects. Inueeu, I am convinceu, that it is
within this aiea that we shoulu anu can impiove the Region
in the futuie anu continue ensuiing effective anu timely
seivice piovision to NS0s anu NSAs thiough a moie accuiate
allocation of iesouices anu a moie effective suppoit system.
I am convinceu that we can achieve this with youi help anu
with the help of oui volunteeis, thus at the same time living
the motto of oui cuiient Regional Scout Plan: "Suppoiting
uiowth in Changing Times".

Time is passing by anu heie we aie, ieviewing the seconu
yeai of the implementation of the Regional Scout Plan 2u1u-
2u1S. Aftei a fiist yeai of inuuction, planning, setting
stiategies, cieating of Woiking anu Coie gioups, selecting
iesponsible leaueis anu piepaiing eveiything neeueu foi a
challenging woik, it is now time to stait measuiing fiist
iesults.
Actually, moving fiom factoiy to consultancy has been a haiu
task foi those involveu. This new appioach is moie complex
anu fatiguing than anticipateu, but also iichei anu moie
exciting than pieuicteu. Foi that ieason, we aie having
inteiesting achievements foi eveiy objective iuentifieu in the
Plan, anu aftei a goou ieview of all the Key Peifoimance
Inuicatois we have obseiveu goou iesults foi a gieat
majoiity of them. In those aieas with less satisfying iesults,
we aie intiouucing aujustments in oiuei to set a moie
iealistic path to oui goal.
Ny peisonal uuties insiue the Committee aie ielateu to two
main uomains: volunteeiing, thiough the volunteeiing
Woiking uioup (vWu), anu Euucational Nethous, thiough
the Euucational Nethous Coie uioup (ENCu). It is mainly in
those two aieas that my tasks aie attiibuteu all aiounu the
yeai, which allows me to focus all my attention in the iight
uiiection.
volunteeiing
Conceining volunteeiing, we have been focussing the
implementation of oui goals in foui uiffeient aspects: the enu
of 2u11 coinciueu with the enu of the Euiopean Yeai of
volunteeiing (EYv 2u11), a yeai ueuicateu to volunteeiing
acioss Euiope, wheie moie oppoitunities foi auults in
Scouting weie cieateu. The Woiking uioup contiibuteu to
this Euiopean Yeai of volunteeiing, which has iesulteu in a
bettei self-iecognition of oui woik in Scouting, as well as in
the piomotion of the iecognition of volunteeiing as well as
the uesign of some tools foi impioving the piocess of
ieciuiting, welcoming anu ietaining of (auult) volunteeis in
NS0s.
Togethei with the Euiope Region WAuuuS, we useu the EYv
2u11 Alliance as an inteiesting shaieu platfoim anu
following the successful completion of the Yeai of
volunteeiing oui next challenge will be to actively contiibute
to the uiscussions about the futuie of the Alliance as a way to
fuithei stiengthening volunteeiing in Euiope.
Euucational Nethous
0n the siue of my involvement in the Euucational Nethous
Coie uioup, I woulu like to stiess the ienewing of oui
tiauition of oiganising a meeting foi Piogiamme anu Auult
Resouices Commissioneis anu membeis of theii teams: the
Euiopean Scout Foium on Euucational Nethous. With the
aim of assisting National Scout 0iganisations anu National
Scout Associations in monitoiing anu impioving theii Youth
Piogiamme anu Auult Resouices stiategies, the Foium
eailiei this yeai in Romania was a unique oppoitunity to
inciease the impact of the woik caiiieu out at national level
to suppoit the action at local level.
Committee Contact anu KISC Liaison
Foi suie, the Contact Committee System continues to piesent
an excellent way to uisseminate infoimation anu to maintain
links between the Region anu the NS0s anu NSAs all aiounu
the Region. I was able to visit a numbei of "my countiies" anu
took pait in inteiesting exchanges in a wiue iange of matteis
ielevant to NS0s, NSAs anu the Region.
Ny position iepiesenting the Committee in Kanueisteg has
given me some occasions to follow up the necessities anu
challenges of this magic coinei in the heait of the Swiss Alps
anu to ensuie that the position of the Region is well
iepiesenteu.
}ust one yeai is now left in this tiiennium anu lots of things
iemain to be uone befoie the Euiopean Confeience next
summei in Beilin.
You, the volunteeis aie the ieason to uo it. Thank you to all
of you, especially to you, the membeis of the vWu anu the

. anu this is what we have been uoing this yeai. Engines aie
full speeu. The Regional Scout Plan is being implementeu. All
contact countiy visits will have been completeu by the enu of
the yeai; having uiscusseu the neeus of NS0s anu NSAs,
finuing ways foi the Region to suppoit anu having them
shaie best piactices with the iest of us. Numeious meetings
anu events have successfully taken place, giving piecious
expeiience anu knowleuge, to the paiticipants to take back
with them in theii luggage.
All Coie uioup anu Woiking uioup membeis have continueu
fulfilling anu implementing the objectives of the Regional
Scout Plan. Woik is uemanuing, intensive, iequiiing
ueuication, time anu theii piesence in iegional events anu¡oi
iepiesentation woik towaius paitneis. It is challenging,
when theie aie links between objectives of uiffeient gioups
anu all membeis shoulu be veiy well infoimeu anu
cooiuinateu. Neveitheless, the iesults up to now show that
we aie veiy much focuseu anu piouuctive, uespite the
complexity anu uifficulties encounteieu initially in the ways
of woiking.
The visits to "my" contact countiies have been a gieat souice
foi valuable expeiience anu knowleuge. visiting the NS0s
anu NSAs anu talking to young leaueis pioviueu a goou
insight of theii neeus anu stiengths. Belping a lot in ueciuing,
in many cases, upon the tailoieu suppoit, which woulu be
most suitable foi each case. Nost impoitant of it all is that
these visits have been motivational anu inspiiing, helping me
continue to uo my woik with passion.
Consiueiable effoit was anu is necessaiy to follow the
iegional events; the most impoitant one being the
Committee liaison foi Roveiway 2u12. It gave me the
pleasuie of feeling the stiong pulse of the Roveis coming
fiom aiounu Euiope anu theii capabilities, but suiely also
maue me anu my colleagues fiom both W0SN anu WAuuuS
Euiopean Committees feel a gieat iesponsibility. A
iesponsibility to ensuie the ueliveiy of a successful joint
event, which has to meet paiticulai euucational objectives.
Looking back to the amount of woik that has been uone by
the Region anu the NS0s anu NSAs, makes a happy smile on
my face slowly stait to appeai. Especially, taking into account
the uifficult peiiou we aie cuiiently in; which can be
chaiacteiizeu as one moie yeai of iecession which is
cieating obstacles like limiteu economic iesouices, social anu
political instabilities.
Neveitheless, Scouting, Scouting in Euiope is theie!
Beliveiing, implementing, suppoiting anu showing soliuaiity

The yeai unuei ieview has been veiy much focusseu on
ensuiing the implementation of the Regional Scout Plan,
woiking in close collaboiation with colleagues in the
Woiking uioups, Coie uioups, Committee anu Staff.
The Euiopean Scout Committee has founu the intiouuction
of Key Peifoimance Inuicatois (KPIs) in the Regional Scout
Plan to be helpful. 0n a iegulai basis we have been able to
check oui piogiess towaius implementing the 0bjectives anu
Actions uetaileu in the Regional Scout Plan anu to have some
sense of how the woik impacts positively on NS0s¡NSAs.
0theis anu I have leaineu a lot about oui methous of
woiking that weie auopteu in this tiiennium anu useful
infoimation is being gatheieu to assist with piepaiations foi
the futuie.
0ui shift fiom 'factoiy to consultancy' looks like it is
happening anu I'm continually impiesseu to leain about the
wiue vaiiety of issues that we aie suppoiting NS0s¡NSAs
with.
Theie have been a numbei of positive uevelopments anu
envisageu changes at woilu level too anu these last twelve
months have iequiieu me to closely follow anu contiibute to
what is happening. This has involveu woik in the
Nembeiship Task Foice, ulobal Suppoit Team, ulobal Issues
Contact uioup anu pioviuing input into the Woilu Scout
Buieau ielocation exeicise.
Cleaily, as mentioneu elsewheie in this iepoit, the economic
climate has been uifficult, not only foi the Region but also foi
a goou numbei of NS0s¡NSAs. Nuch of my time has been
involveu in continuing to push foi exteinal funuing to help
uiveit the uemanu on oui coie income. We have hau goou
success in this iegaiu with ciica E0R 2Su,uuu having been
souiceu foi the benefit of NS0s¡NSAs as well as the Region.
Accompanying this point, theie have been uifficult
uiscussions aiounu futuie buuget consiueiations. Buiing this
past yeai, iegiettably, we teiminateu the bi-lateial Financial
Agieement that we hau with Kanueisteg Inteinational Scout
Centie. It was felt that it was not equitable to continue
paying an annual giant of CBF 1uu,uuu to KISC, when othei
buuget lines anu suppoit to NS0s¡NSAs via the Paitneiships
Funu woulu neeu to be cut.
That saiu, I'm pleaseu to say that we aie in positive uialogue
with KISC anu look foiwaiu to the possibility of new
aiiangements that take into account the challenges that we
face touay anu will likely face foi some time.

The seconu yeai of the tiiennium has been a full-speeu
peiiou: aftei the set-up phase of the fiist yeai, anu befoie the
stait of the piepaiations foi the next tiiennium, the full focus
has been on the Regional Scout Plan. The Cooiuinatois, othei
volunteeis anu the iegional staff have all been woiking haiu
to uelivei the suppoit to NS0s. Anu the numbei of Scouts in
Euiope is giowing!
The highlight of the yeai was Roveiway 2u12 in Finlanu, a
high-quality inteinational expeiience foi SSuu young people.
The stiength of Scouting in Euiope was uemonstiateu by the
impiessive mobilization uespite uifficult economic times.
Euiope anu the othei Regions
Buiing the past yeai Euiope has been engaging positively
with the iest of the Scouting woilu. By looking beyonu the
bounuaiies of Euiope, we contiibute to the woilu-wiue unity
of the Novement even in times of tensions. Buiing the yeai,
we have hau a Euiope-Euiasia meeting in Piague, a
Paitneiships Event in Paiis anu we have completeu the fiist
phase of the 0nguvu pioject between Afiican anu Euiopean
NS0s. A Euio-Aiab woikshop was oiganizeu at Roveiway
thanks to exteinal funuing.
Exteinal Funuing anu E0 buuget
In the past yeai 2Su uuu t has been iaiseu to suppoit Scout
activities, mainly NS0's tiavel costs to seminais anu events.
We aie appioaching 1 million t in total amount obtaineu
since 2uu8. This is essential now when the Region's
tiauitional funuing is ieuuceu uue to the financial ciisis. The
Euiopean Scout Founuation has also incieaseu the funuing
available to NS0s with the establishment of the new
Euiopean Tiaining Funu.
In auvocacy woik, the main issue has been E0's youth buuget
foi yeais 2u14-2u2u. The cuiient negotiations will have an
impact foi 7 yeais. 0ui auvocacy message can be ieinfoiceu
if the national Ninistiies of Finance aie maue awaie of the
fact that Scouts in theii countiy aie benefiting fiom the E0
youth funus.
uiils anu Boys, Women anu Nen in Scouting
A numbei SAuN0s have completeu oi openeu a piocess of
iegisteiing all theii membeis, giils anu boys, in W0SN. This
is in line with the Woilu Scout Committee's
iecommenuations. W0SN's new membeiship fee system
implies that the fees aie not affecteu by an inciease in the
ueclaieu numbei of Scouts befoie 2u2u. 11 SAuN0s have so
fai taken the uecision, anu similai piocesses of ieflection aie
cuiiently ongoing in a numbei of otheis. These changes
unueiline the neeu to suppoit NS0s in ensuiing that Scouting
is auapteu to both giils anu boys anu that theie aie no
obstacles to the full paiticipation of both genueis in Scouting.

This was a miuule yeai of the tiiennium anu it ceitainly felt
like that. A vast majoiity of the woik pioceuuies of the
Committee anu of the volunteei bouy of the Region built by
the Woiking uioups anu Coie gioups have been set oi (in
many cases only) ie-set in the fiist yeai of the tiiennium. Foi
that ieason, the seconu yeai was uefinitely in full geai. This
uoes not mean eveiything anu eveiybouy woikeu smoothly
anu peifectly the whole S6S uays. Since the powei of what
the Region can uo foi its NS0s lies in its human iesouices
(suppoiteu as efficiently as possible by its financial
iesouices), both we as inuiviuuals anu the gioups that get
the ball iolling hau theii ups anu uowns, theii moments of
joy anu woik beyonu limits, as well as moments of
exhaustion anu hesitation. Bowevei, the foimei ones beat
the lattei ones by a huge maigin.
The gioups whose woik I am piouu to follow anu suppoit
uiiectly have shown some wonueiful outcomes anu theii
membeis a lot of ueuication to theii iespective aieas anu to
the woik anu mission of the Region. Eveiybouy felt that as
much as we tiy oui best to woik as haiu as possible fiom
Confeience to Confeience, fiom Plan to Plan, the seconu yeai
is piobably the one wheie a big pait of the aims can, neeus
anu must be accomplisheu. With a pait of the fiist yeai being
investeu in the selection of the most suitable volunteeis
offeieu by the NS0s foi the most suitable tasks anu with the
thiiu yeai with one eye on the next Plan, the seconu yeai
uefinitely is the one with as close to only one focus as
possible.
The coopeiation with NS0s is one of the most inteiesting
paits of the woik of a Committee membei. Suie, it uoes have
its challenges as well as any long-uistance communication.
But the ability to leain about gieat examples of goou piojects
in one countiy anu seeing that anothei countiy coulu benefit
fiom that appioach anu¡oi know-how as well, anu seeing
countiies suppoiting each othei, that is something that can
be uone on a veiy small scale among gioups within an NS0,
anu something that gets a completely uiffeient uimension
when uone on a iegional level. Tiying to suppoit NS0s in
theii netwoiking effoits is - foi me - one of the most
iewaiuing "jobs" of a Committee membei.
The seconu yeai of my seivice to the Region fiom the
position of a Committee membei hau a lot of joys but one
highlight stanus out without uiscussion. The 7th Euucational
Nethous Foium, iun by a team of ueuicateu volunteeis anu
efficiently suppoiteu by the Romanian NS0, foi ovei 1uu
paiticipants fiom almost all countiies of the Region, was a
majoi success in biinging the iight people togethei.
Piogiamme Commissioneis, commissioneis of all age
sections, Tiaining Commissioneis anu many otheis spent
five uays exchanging gieat iueas, uiscussing futuie anu
leaining fiom each othei. In a gieat atmospheie.
Anu that is what the woik of the Region is anu shoulu be
about. About suppoiting anu oiganizing activities wheie
facilitation of exchange among NS0s can biing impiovement
to the way Scouting is uone on national anu local levels.

The Euiopean Yeai of volunteeiing 2u11 (EYv 2u11) was
one of the highlights of oui woik. In close cooiuination with
WAuuuS we uiu oui best to biing piactical outcomes visible
even at the local level. We weie iepiesenteu in five out of six
woiking gioups of the EYv 2u11 Alliance anu playeu an

This seconu yeai of the tiiennium was oiientateu thiough
the uevelopment of new paitneiships with two main events:
the Euiope-Euiasia meeting anu the Paitneiship event.
In Novembei 2u11, the Euiope-Euiasia meeting was
oiganizeu in Piague gatheiing numeious paiticipants fiom
Euiope anu Euiasia, membeis of the Euiopean, Euiasia anu
Woilu committee anu even the Secietaiy ueneial. The event
was a unique oppoitunity foi the woiking gioup as it was
focuseu on builuing new paitneiships. Beyonu this theme, it
was the oppoitunity foi most of the paiticipants to bettei
know each othei anu uiscovei uiffeient scouting. The
outcomes weie veiy positive with new paitneiships anu
othei ieneweu with cieative iueas!
As the peak of the tiiennium, the Paitneiships Event took
place in Paiis in Naich 2u12. 0iganizeu by Scouts et uuiues
ue Fiance anu the Euiopean Region, the objective was at the
same time to have a ueuicateu event on Paitneiships uuiing
the tiiennium anu also to stiengthen the Noith-South
netwoik to make it moie attiactive so that it can be the place
to talk about paitneiships anu to builu oi cooiuinate new
paitneiships. The event was successful with moie than 7u
paiticipants fiom Euiope, Euiasia, Aiab anu Afiica iegions. It
was a fiist step to ienew the way we manage paitneiships
anu how we can cooiuinate all togethei in Euiope oui woik
on Paitneiships. This fiist goou expeiience will be iepeateu
next yeai as the Nouvement Scout ue Suisse accepteu to host
the next session. 0f couise, we neeu to take into account
moie effectively oui uiffeient ways of woiking so that it can
moie piouuctive!
Besiues these two main events, the Inteiactive map on
Paitneiships was piesenteu anu the objective is to pioviue
Paitneiships main uata between Euiope anu otheis iegions
in a map available on Inteinet. All the NS0¡NSAs can entei
the uata, which is valiuateu latei on by a moueiatoi. This
action is a conciete answei of a neeu expiesseu by seveial
NS0 in Euiope.
With the stiong suppoit of the office, a new application foi
multilateial paitneiship pioject between Euiope anu Afiica
was piesenteu in the fiame of Euiopean Youth piogiamme
but unfoitunately was not successful. Neveitheless, it biings
us the oppoitunity to be even moie cieative to continue

We have noticeu that some NS0s¡NSAs that have iuentifieu

to engage with us to get the piocess staiteu. We woulu
welcome any obseivations oi suggestions as to how we
might make this easiei.
We hau a Coie uioup meeting uuiing the Acauemy in 2u11, it

eveiy 6 to 8 weeks since then anu because all of oui team aie
helping to oiganise Acauemy 2u12 we will be having anothei

Looking back at the intensive woik anu numeious effoits
spent by the volunteeis anu the Biussels 0ffice last yeai, I
can single out two majoi uiiections of the activities of
Exteinal Relations anu Funuing Coie uioup anu the exteinal
iepiesentatives - those uiiecteu at the ueliveiing of the
Regional WP anu those aimeu at piopei iesponuing to the
cuiient uevelopment in the aieas of oui inteiest.
Beliveiing the objectives of the Regional Scout Plan was
ensuieu by a constant iepiesentation woik towaius the
majoi paitneis - Euiopean Youth Foium (YF}), Council of
Euiope (CoE), Euiopean Pailiament anu ielevant
contiibutions to Regional events as well as majoi events
oiganizeu by paitneis, namely:
• ERFCu's stiong contiibution to the Acauemy wheie the
Coie uioup anu exteinal iepsentatives piesenteu the
most impoitant topics of exteinal ielations, e.g. woiking
with exteinal paitneis, exteinal factois of giowth,
auvocacy anu the value of Scouting, as well as
methouology of exteinal woik.
• Euiopean Yeai of volunteeiing 2u11 - togethei with
vWu anu exteinal iepiesentatives the majoi focus of
iepiesentation woik in 2u11 was aimeu at Scouting's
contiibution to the uevelopment of volunteeiing
policies anu ensuiing piomotion anu iecognition of the
value of volunteeiing in Euiope.
• The II Youth Convention on volunteeiing, oiganizeu by
YF}, was the biggest civil-society event uuiing the
Euiopean Yeai of volunteeiing. The Convention follows
the Stakeholuei Confeience at which the
iepiesentatives of youth oiganizations as well as
iepiesentatives of Euiopean Economic anu Social
Committee, Euiopean Pailiament anu Euiopean
Commission uebateu about the iole anu the futuie of
volunteeis in Euiope, anu specifically the issue of iights
of the volunteei. Its aim was to make suie the voices of
young volunteeis anu theii oiganisations aie heaiu,
cieating a uialogue to uiscuss a "Chaitei on the Rights of

volunteeis", ueveloping a Beclaiation on the iights of
volunteeis.
• W0SN was not only iepiesenteu at Stakeholuei
Confeience but also maue the laigest contiibution to the
volunteeiing-village by iepiesenting the uiveisity of
the woik of the Novement anu oiganizing woikshops
on the value of volunteeiing togethei with WAuuuS anu
0ECB.
• Baseu upon the outcomes of EYv 2u11, which weie
embouieu in the Policy Agenua on volunteeiing in
Euiope (P.A.v.E), the ERFCu ievieweu anu upuateu the
Region's policy papei on volunteeiing which was
auopteu by the ESC in Naich 2u12.
• Suppoiteu by the Euiopean Youth Founuation, a Stuuy
Session on auvocacy took place in Febiuaiy in Euiopean
Youth Centie in Buuapest. 24 paiticipants fiom 21
NSAs¡NS0s fiom Euiope anu Euiasia iegion
paiticipateu in the Stuuy session nameu "Shape the
change: Auvocacy foi Youth Rights" wheie they woikeu
togethei to leain about youth paiticipation, youth
iights, youth policy, what is auvocacy, how to uevelop
an auvocacy stiategy anu how to implement it in theii
NSAs¡NS0s.
• The Speak out, tell youi Stoiy! Young spokespeisons'
tiaining took place fiom the 4th to the 8th of }uly in
uhent, Belgium. The tiaining was oiganizeu in
coopeiation with F0S - 0pen Scouting with the suppoit
of the Youth in Action piogiamme, with the
paiticipation of 2S scouts fiom 12 uiffeient
oiganisations¡associations fiom all ovei Euiope.
• Buiing these uays they leaint a lot about iepiesenting
Scouting foi exteinal auuiences, with the help of oui
expeiienceu tiaineis.
• In the fiamewoik of tailoieu suppoit in the aiea of
Exteinal Relations anu Funuing the 0ffice manageu to
secuie a Youth in Action giant to iun a successful
pioject in paitneiship with the Bungaiian Scout
Association: Antal Piios, a membei of Bungaiian NS0,
woikeu foi 6 months in the office in Biussels with the
aim to get expeiience anu new skills to be then applieu
at the ietuin in Bungaiy. The final iesult of this pioject
will be a Toolkit on Exteinal Repiesentation, piepaieu
by Antal anu the Coie uioup to be publisheu soon.
0nlike many othei aieas of woik, oui iole is to constantly
analyze anu ieact to the cuiient uevelopments conceining
youth policy anu volunteeiing in Euiope. The seconu half of
2u11 was maikeu by the iefoiming piocesses of the Council
of Euiope anu its Youth Sectoi. In Novembei 2u11 W0SN
iepiesentative Sanuu Coica was electeu to be a membei of
the Auvisoiy Council on Youth. The Auvisoiy Council on
Youth (AC) is a Council of Euiope's (CoE) stiuctuie, pait of
the co-management piocess, maue up of Su iepiesentatives
of youth Nu0s anu netwoiks fiom CoE Nembei States that
pioviue opinions anu input on all youth sectoi activities. It
also ensuies that young people aie involveu in othei
activities of the Council of Euiope as youth policies iequiie a
cioss-sectoi appioach.
Anothei significant piocess of the last quaitei of 2u11 anu
the fiist quaitei 2u12 have been by an intensive piocess of
ensuiing stiategic W0SN's impact anu ielevance in the youth
policy fielu thiough the new cycle of Stiategic Piioiities of
YF}. In seveial cycles of consultations the input of the Coie
uioup anu the exteinal iepiesentatives was maue to shape
the futuie of the Euiopean Youth Policy foi the next 6 yeais.
Youth paiticipation, stiong youth oiganization anu youth
autonomy anu inclusion will be on the top political agenua of
the Euiopean Youth Foium, its membeis anu paitneis
(http:¡¡www.youthfoium.oig¡images¡stoiies¡Bocuments¡S
tiategic_Piioiities¡u2SS-12_SP2u1S-18_FINAL.puf).
W0SN has been veiy active thiough its paiticipation to the
expeit gioup on Youth in Action of the Euiopean Youth
Foium, as well as to the uiffeient stakeholueis meetings
oiganiseu since autumn 2u11. Woiiieu about the
auministiative giant ienewal, W0SN hau leau a coalition of
netwoiks anu oiganisations iecipient of the E0
auministiative giant. A joint lettei was sent to all ielevant
NEPs, piesiuencies, Nembeis States anu to the Euiopean
Commission. We ieceiveu a gieat suppoit fiom the Euiopean
Pailiament siue. Following this lettei, on the invitation of the
Euiopean Youth Foium, we met, foi a woiking meeting, the
E0 Commissionei in chaige of youth, Nis vassiliou. The iole
of W0SN was to give a conciete anu specific example of the
use of the auministiative giant, focusing on the uiffeience
with gianting auministiative funu to auministiate a pioject.
It seems that W0SN contiibution was successful as Nis
vassiliou concluueu the meeting by expiessing hei wish to
ieview the issue; this was a fiist since the Euiopean
Commission pioposal as the EC has always iefuseu as
piinciple to ieconsiuei its position. Nis vassiliou gave othei
goou inuications towaius the evolution of the piocess as well
as towaius the implication of youth oiganisations - useis- in
the uesign of the piogiamme itself (implementation of the
piogiamme).
These achievements anu successes woulu not have been
possible without a stiong netwoik of the ERFCu, exteinal
iepiesentatives, the 0ffice anu the ESC.

The +(#(1%+%#$&"6&$'%&63#N-&"6&"3*&"*1(#)-($)"# in the
miuule of this tuibulent time is ceitainly a challenge. As I
have stateu just a yeai ago in the annual iepoit, when I took
up the challenging position of the Regional Tieasuiei: "it is
no seciet that the Regional income fiom its main souice has
been ieuuceu substantially ovei the last couple of yeais.
What we neeu theiefoie is a stiategy to maintain (anu even
impiove) oui activity level with obvious buuget constiains
anu to stiengthen the uiveisification of oui income souices
ueveloping stiategies anu exploiting oppoitunities in
Euiope."
Buiing the yeai we have been woiking towaius this
uiiection. We have intiouuceu a new buugeting policy, which
involves all the gioups anu the inuiviuuals conceineu in the
uesign anu implementation of the buuget. This buugeting
piocess has staiteu in Novembei 2u11. The uesign pait foi

by }uly 2u12 anu the implementation piocess will stait as
fiom the fiist uay of the new fiscal yeai on 1 0ctobei 2u12.
The piocess will be iepeateu foi the peiiou 2u1S-2u14
staiting fiom the ESC Neeting in Novembei 2u12.
The annual auuit has been a challenge this yeai because of
the setting up of the Euiopean Investment Funu (EIF). This
was the fiist annual auuit of the new set up that opeiates
unuei the Euiopean Scout Founuation (ESF), with which we
have an excellent co-opeiation. Bowevei, cleaiing some

0ui objective iemains to maximize the income anu benefits
of the ESR by exploiting all possible income souices,
ensuiing at the same time that oui financial position iemains

The miuule yeai of any tiiennium is inevitably when we
anticipate that a lot of actions take place anu this makes foi a

In the aiea of Euucational Nethous, theie has been a lot of

Euucational Nethous Foium. It is cleai that with changes in
