The European Scout Education Forum 2018

The European Scout Region, in collaboration with the National Organisation of Romanian Scouts, is pleased to invite you to the European Scout Education Forum 2018, which will be held from 30 May to 3 June 2018 in Bucharest, Romania.

Since 1999, leaders involved at national level in the areas of youth programme and adult resources from all over Europe have gathered every two or three years to take part in the Forum on Educational Methods.

The Forum is one of the most popular events that takes place in Europe, and has a very special atmosphere due to the participants having similar interest in the educational aspects of Scouting and sharing similar backgrounds, challenges and concerns.

Previous events have been held in Malta (1999), Spain (2001), Slovenia (2003), Luxembourg (2005), Denmark (2007), Portugal (2009), Romania (2012) and Turkey (2015) making the 2018 edition the 9th Education Forum in the European Region.
