European Regional Committee Meeting Concludes

July 17th, 2012 11:56 am

The European Regional Committee had its second meeting this past week in Rio Marina, Italy. Each member travelled using various methods to Elba Island off the Tuscan coast of Italy to the Casa Valdese.

Over the course of four working days the committee members presented their reports on the work they have been doing since January, spoke about events that they have participated in on behalf of WSCF Europe, heard reports about the Executive Committee meeting that took place this spring in Berlin and were caught up on the work that has been taking place in the WSCF Europe Regional Office.

The group discussed relationships with partners and future events they are holding as well as prepared for WSCF Europe’s own events that are coming up. Specifically they are looking forward to the coming Solidarity Conference (Who is my Neighbour? Migration and Xenophobia in Europe), the Joint EYCE-WSCF Europe Study Session on Gender (Gender Revised?!) and even further into the future with the next Culture and Higher Education and Solidarity Conference.

The Regional Committee is looking forward in particular to the three upcoming Capacity Building Trainings that will take place in each subregion this fall. Please watch the website closely for further updates on these events. If you would like more details please contact WSCF Europe Regional Secretary.

There was also time in the programme to continue the Strategic Planning process and an afternoon session of Team Building… which may be better described as a water fight. Thankfully during the incredibly hot lunch breaks the island provided crystal clear water to swim in and plenty of ice cream.
