Spiritual development has always been a part of Guiding and Scouting, but the evolution of our societies has led to many ways to put this in action (or not). As a result of changes, several of associations from Europe came together in 2010 to discuss the way Spiritual development is viewed.
We quickly agreed on our common definition of spiritual development that include both confessional and non- confessional views.
For this reason, we have started a networking group under the label “Spiriteco” which means Spirituality in Esperanto; a symbol of our goal – Spirituality for all.
In more recent years, our network has grown to include new
associations, and we continue to expand.
Spiriteco is currently active at European level.
The network has met regularly over recent years to discuss our vision
for spiritual development and also how to put this vision into action.
- We have prepared workshops for youths attending international events to help them development in an active way.
- We have led workshop at Roverway 2012 and 2018 (European event for 16-22 y.o. Guides and Scouts), at the World Jamboree 2015 and at the World Moot 2017 .
- We have lead training session for leaders in WOSM Academy (European training course on different topics) 2015, 2016 and 2017. We were present with workshop at the European Guides and Scouts Conference 2013 and 2016 and the World Guides Conference 2017…
- On the 19th of May 2018 Spiriteco became an association settled in Luxembourg and elected its first President and Board.
