International Training on Social Entrepreneurship in Guiding and Scouting

Dear friends in guiding and scouting,

The Joint Committee of Girl Guides in Denmark is happy to invite you to our international training on social entrepreneurship. The training will take place December 1-4 2016 in Holstebro, Denmark.

Social Entr.

Duty to others is one of the fundamental principles in guiding and scouting. The training on social entrepreneurship in guiding and scouting will focus on putting duty to others in a new perspective by aiming at creating sustainable value in the local community. The training combines the guide and scout method with the ”Design for Change” methodology for working with social entrepreneurship with youth and children.

The aim of the training is to get experience on working with social entrepreneurship in a guiding and scouting context for creating value adding community projects with a strong focus on involvement and empowerment of guides and scouts. When empowering the guides and scouts in the creative and decision making process they experience a great sense of ownership for the value creation.
