”The General Assembly of the European Youth Forum is taking place in Maribor, Slovenia between 22-25 November 2012. It will once again be an opportunity to decide the strategic direction of the organization and elect a new Board.
The European Youth Forum brings together almost 100 International Youth Organizations and National Youth Councils, advocating for the needs of young people and youth organizations towards the international institutions at European and global level. Recognizing the importance of taking an active role in influencing youth policies to support the development of Guiding and Scouting in Europe, both the Europe Region WAGGGS and the European Scout Region are active members of the European Youth Forum.
Both regions have nominated candidates for the Board of the European Youth Forum:
