(Istanbul, Genève/WSBERO) – On the first weekend of October, the members of the Growth Through Quality Working Group (GQWG) of the European Region of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) came together in Istanbul, Turkey for a very productive, yet fun loaded working session.
Hulda (IS) and Mariana (GR) from the GQWG, report:
“As we went through the agenda items – looking at how much (or little?) we have progressed with respect to the Regional Scout Plan and the key performance indicators (KPIs) the Committee had set before us, and looking carefully at each and every case where our Tailored Support had been requested (or not?) and provided (or not yet!), one particular topic emerged again and again: the issue of change. One can easily claim that the world we are living in is full of adversity and difficult situations. Should one choose to look at each adversity as an opportunity, rather than a threat, and therefore respond to change in a positive and proactive way, he or she will eventually come up with ways to stimulate growth.”
“We have to bear in mind that this is not a theoretical exercise; for there are many National Scout Organisations (NSOs) and National Scout Associations (NSAs) across Europe that are growing, in a very fast rate and sustainable fashion. It might take years to gather adequate data and research all of the parameters that influence growth in the various contexts (cultural, national, economic etc.), but it takes only two words to describe the one thing which is essential for any NSO or NSA to have if it is to be any successful in stimulating growth: a STRATEGIC PLAN.”
“It is something easier said than done, because it surely takes time and it may need a lot of resources, but it is something that NSOs and NSAs cannot avoid if they are to grow, number-wise and quality-wise.”
“So, do you think or know that your association needs help designing a strategic plan for growth? – If yes, we are happy to support you in this exercise. Just ask the question!”

Maybe one of these international camps is exactly what you were looking for?
