The 5th European Network meeting for national Rover commissioners The 2nd European Network meeting for national Venture Scout commissioners will take place on Iceland, 18 – 21 September 2014. There is almost no other place more inspiring than Iceland to host a meeting dedicated to Venture Scouts and Rovers!

One of the main conclusions of the previous RoverNet and VentureNet meetings in Malta in 2013 was the need and desire of Venture and Rover Commissioners to have more exchange opportunities and to continue to share during network meetings. As a result, in cooperation with the Scout Association of Iceland, the European Scout Region has prepared a project to the European Union to support the next edition of these two network meetings.

We believe that there is almost no other place more inspiring than Iceland to host a meeting dedicated to Venture Scouts and Rovers!

Though this is an invitation for both events, some of the programme and the content of the meetings are separate and different. RoverNet, being at its 5th edition and following a long series of European initiatives defined for this age section (, RoCoReKi, Roverway, Agora, ESVP, etc.) will try to build on existing projects and programme frameworks whereas VentureNet, at its second edition, aims to consolidate the network and explore the possibilities for future cooperation, potential partnerships and Regional support initiatives/frameworks.
