Do you want to find out how you can join the WAGGGS campaign “Stop the violence: Speak out for Girls Rights?” and help end violence against girls?  There are still a few places left for the  seminar taking place between 29th November and 4th December in Antwerp, Belgium organized on the campaign by the Europe Region. 

Join Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from across Europe to discuss how violence affects girls and young women in Europe, how WAGGGS is taking action, get training on campaigning and lobbying and develop your own campaign or project on which you will work following the end of the seminar.
