Jeremy Apert
European scout committee candidate

Long story short

My name is Jérémy, I am 32 years old and I was born in Paris.

I am currently living in Brussels where I am the Secretary General of the Europe Region of the International Movement for Rural Catholic Agricultural Youth (MIJARC Europe).  My professional career, like my Scouting commitment, has always been guided by my values and my desire to contribute to a better world.

I am passionate about travelling, discovering new languages and cultures. I really enjoy hiking, camping, scuba diving and climbing.

A big consumer of fiction, in all its formats, I like to dream of another world, to imagine solutions to the problems that surround us.

Priorities 

Leading by example : "Be the laboratory"

Youth involvement

  • Transcend the youth participation topic to talk about participation in general

  • Change the narrative between young vs adult to new vs experienced

  • Create a stronger induction system for all volunteers in WOSM Europe

  • Capitalise on the experiment in WOSM to produce resources and support for Mos

 

Sustainable Development

  • Set objectives to reach climate neutrality before 2033

  • Have ambitious goals to develop more educational resources and limit the impact of events

  • Develop our sustainability advocacy further

  • Adopt more environmentally-friendly investment practices with our investment fund.

  • Use our work on sustainable development for the growth of the movement

Moving further into the 21th century

Reinventing Scouting

  • Welcome the digital age with open arms

  • Increase our capacity to create audiovisual educational content and develop partnerships with media companies

  • Develop more innovative scouting digital activities

  • Keep innovating and developing more physical activities to bring more opportunities for young people to connect with each other and with nature.

Reaching out to the world

External Relations

  • Create an ambitious advocacy strategy for the region

  • Focus more on impact and less on visibility

  • Increase our means to have political influence

    • Build a network of scout-friendly members of the European Parliament

    • Look for the opportunity to increase our cooperation with the World Scout Parliamentary Union

  • Increase the cooperation between WOSM and its MOs to create coordinated actions on specific legislation

 

Peace-building

  • Develop a network to facilitate the organization of European Youth Exchanges, small Jamborees that MOs can organize with European Union funding and that will increase the number of young people attending international activities, creating bonds across the borders.

  • Think of smaller international Jamborees we could organize to strengthen European citizenship among our young members

  • Continue engaging and strengthening our partnerships on this topic

 

Finance

  • Invest more in our fundraising capacities in the European Support Center to have a bigger team capable of diversifying our funding sources

  • Create a timeline for the deployment of the Regional Investment Fund to bring a new sustainable stream of revenue to the region

    • Start working with private foundations (on the environmental topic)
