Dear scouts and guides,
In a little more than one and a half years, on August 3rd, 2016, there are several thousands Rovers and Rangers, from all corners of Europe, will be welcomed in the six points of the Hexagon, as France is nicknamed.
This 5th Roverway will be the unique opportunity for these young participants to experience, during the first six days of the event, the thrills of working together with a local partner in projects designed to change the local reality near the Mediterranean Sea, up in the Alps, the North or someplace else in France. Commitment, European citizenship… words with a
strong resonance at this moment in France, when tragic events are marking our society. Scoutisme Français and all Roverway planning team were upset by these events and mobilized ; we are proud through this organization of gathering to show that young people of all Europe are capable of living together their differences, of making a commitment in the service of a peace society, of building together the European and World citizenship of tomorrow.
There will be more than hundred citizenrelated projects carried out throughout France by the 5000 Rovers and Rangers participating, followed by four intense days of sharing, debate,
celebration and reflection at Jambville, just outside Paris. In this bulletin you will discover the educational aims of the event, which were already shared with you, WOSM National Scout Organizations and WAGGGS Member Organizations from all over Europe, during the Scout and Guide conference in Berlin, in 2013, and, later on, during the first Heads of Contingents and RoverReps Meeting in of November, 2014. You will also find out here more about the ways you can continue to be involved in the development of the project: Facebook,
All these tools are made for you and, of course, for the Rovers, Rangers, IST who can register starting in September 2015!
So… are you ready? Go! On The Road, with us !!
