37th World Conference 2021

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the virtual 37th World Conference that will take place from Tuesday 27 July to Sunday 1 August.  

With hosting the 37th World Conference as an online event, we hope this will mean more of us can join together from around the world to discuss and vote on important governance decisions that will shape the future of the Movement. 

Given the difficulties of conducting general meetings virtually, the programme of the conference will be more focused and shorter than usual. Decisions to be made by Member Organisations at the World Conference are:

  • the election of new World Board members 
  • bids to host the 2023 World Conference 
  • proposed constitutional and other motions 

We would like to see all our MOs having the opportunity for their voices to be heard.  We recognise that time zones will be a big challenge for some MOs, and we want to appreciate in advance the efforts from participants who will be joining early in the morning or having to stay up late to attend. 

If you want to make your voice heard and participate in the decision-making process for the future of our Movement, join us at the virtual 37th World Conference. 

In this Booking Pack you will find all the information you need to participate in the virtual 37th World Conference, how to register and an outline programme that will help you plan your week.  

We are looking forward to welcoming you. 

Yours in Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting,
