Do you want to participate in Roverway 2018?

This is possible when you have the right age. If you were born between 3 August 1995 and 23 July 2002 you can join as a participant. If you were born on or before 3 August 1995 you can get involved as an IST member. Participants and IST members who would like to join need to contact their home countries’ MO/NSO to ask if they are forming a contingent. If that isn’t the case you can ask another contingent to join them.

Dutch Roverscouts who want to participate in Roverway 2018 will do so as part of the Dutch contingent, as they would for other international events. As this edition of Roverway is held in the Netherlands, there will also be a contingent management team for the Dutch contingent to make the event happen.

Registration is going via your country’s contingent. Please contact them.

What does the logo entail?

The motto of Roverway 2018 is ‘Opposites Attract’. This motto is visually indicated by the signpost.

Both the signpost and the international ‘Y’ icon depict the Paths, which are essential parts of the Roverway 2018 programme.

The water and ‘lelievlet’ - a typical Dutch sea scouts’ sailing boat - reflect the fact we would like to offer a sailing experience to every Rover or Ranger during the stay at the International Scout and Guide Centre in Zeewolde.

The colours are based on our national Rover and Ranger badge, in which blue stands for the world as exploration base and orange stands for the Dutch national identity and the royal family. In addition, orange is the national ‘section color’ for Rovers and Rangers in the Netherlands.

The three points of the logo represent the three educational objectives (Character, Curiosity & Career).

Opposites Attract

This Roverway edition
will focus on the personal
development of the participating Rovers and Rangers as part of their role in society. The Roverway will provide the environment in which Rovers and Rangers can interchange experiences, knowledge and ideas. This exchange of experiences will be encouraged through the three educational objectives, which all centralize around society and intercultural learning.
