Havbraatt og Kristiansand i juni

I juni hadde Komité Speiding møtet sitt på Havbraatt. Vi fikk en nydelig tur i skjærgården rundt Kristiansand og ble kjent med speiderstedet til 7. Kristiansand sjøspeidergruppe og med hverandre.

..og utforsket rester etter 2. verdenskrig.

Så hadde vi selvfølgelig møte og diskuterte små og store ting.

Det var til og med deilig vær innimellom, men på tross av at det var juni var genserne for det meste på.

Vi var også inni gangene i fjellet, som speiderne bruker litt som lager og som nesten er litt museum.

Det var veldig fint å være ute på tur og dagen etter jeg kom tilbake overtok vi nøklene til leiligheten og så startet oppussingssirkuset 🙂

Yet another committee meeting

So this weekend I have been in Drøbak with my committee for our monthly meeting. We met up on Friday for dinner, a workshop on the platform TeamworkPM and light talk. Yesterday we did “big discussions” on program development, project management, what we should spend our time doing the next year. Today we have the actual meeting and later I will have a calm Sunday at home.

Havbraatt

This weekend I am here:

Nice, eh?

This is Havbratt, owned by the Norwegian Scout and Guide Association. We are having our monthly committee meeting here, sailing around Kristiansand.

I hope I will look as cool as Raymond (yellow hat) and Trygve. Raymond is actually in the committee, but will leave us in September when his turn is over. Raymond is a sea scout and will be our captain for the weekend. I am bringing my camera, so keep your fingers crossed for good weather!

WAGGGS Leadership Development Program

…or why I went to Kopenhagen a couple of weeks ago.

It was a part of the leader development work that they do in WAGGGS (world organisation for girl scouts and guides) and this time the object was global leadership in diverse environments. In order to make it diverse, there was a great geographic diversity in the origin of the participants. I have never been in such a diverse environment before, not that I haven’t been in places with people from all over the world, but as we were only 60 people, I actullay talked to everyone during the five days we were there. And I learned so mutch about all the countries that were there. I had time to learn about life, challenges and joys of young people all over.

I only managed to get my camera out one day, but the light was wonderful, so I am quite pleased with the result.

USA talking about selling cookies. Do you see that number? They sell cookies for 790 million USD a year. Crazy. But they do have 2 million youth members as well.

Oh, and thin mints is actually the best cookie I have tasted in a long while. No wonder it is the best selling cookie in the US (even though they only sell it one month a year).

Nigeria had made centenery dresses in the guide groups at home. Isn’t it great?

This is what has kept me in scouting after I moved away from home. The endless possibilities to travel, meet new people and learn about the world. To see the diversity and get to know exhiting people who do exactly what I do.

And in two weeks I’m going to Paris to plan an event quite like this 🙂 I’m hoping for a sunny Paris.
