WAGGGS selected article[edit]

I've chosen WAGGGS as our selected article for May. I've copyedited the lead some, but it could use more work. If you would like to help, work on it some more and also update Portal:Scouting/Selected_article/May.Rlevse 12:16, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

These working methods are described in the conference documents.s This committee is composed of an equal number of representatives from both organizations. The WOSM members are World Committee Chairman Francisco S. Roman, Vice-Chairman Jocelyne Gendrin, Committee member Garth Morrison, and WOSM Secretary General Jacques Moreillon, with Deputy Secretary General Malek Gabr as the resource and permanent liaison person with WAGGGS.The group met in London in November 1996, in Geneva in September 1997,and in London in September 1998. These meetings were held in a spirit of openness, with a desire to find positive solutions to the issues that concern both WAGGGS and WOSM. Following each meeting, a report was sent to all WAGGGS organizations and all WOSM organizations.A number of projects of mutual interest were addressed, including: the “CEO”project to promote the importance of non-formal education provided by Scouting, Guiding, and other youth organizations; the UNHCR/WAGGGS/WOSM Refugee Project; the Nobel Peace Prize; and the new anti-personnel mines campaign.The committee agreed that WAGGGS/WOSM Statement on Relationships, signed in May 1992, needed updating to meet the needs and challenges of both World Organizations today. This will be considered again following the forthcoming World conferences of the two organizations.The subject of Scout and Guide National Organizations (SAGNOs) was regularly discussed. Traditionally, and by contractual agreement between WAGGGS and WOSM, the male members of SAGNOs belong to WOSM and the female members belong to WAGGGS. In 1998 the WAGGGS World Board adopted a statement which allowed boys in SAGNOs to also become members of WAGGGS, while at the same time retaining their membership of WOSM if they so wished. This rendered the long-standing definition of a SAGNO obsolete. Asa result, the World Scout Committee concluded that SAGNOs females could become members of WOSM (while at the same time retaining their membership of WAGGGS if they so wished), subject to fulfilling all conditions of membership. For those SAGNOs who wish their female members to remain members of WAGGGS only, a document has been prepared for the World Scout Conference explaining the background (this question was the subject of resolution 6/96 adopted in Oslo) and proposing a policy to be adopted at the Durban conference.WORLD SCOUT COMMITTEE, continued Strategy Task Force continued World Guide and Scout Consultative Committee
