Youngsters in Europe are facing a changing society. Rising youth unemployment in the South of Europe, increased consumer power by online means and debates challenging gender and diversity as immigrants are looking after a better future are only some examples of this change. 

Dutch democracy and tolerance have been shaped by the necessity to control and navigate the waters. Reclaiming lands and sailing the seas and rivers have fostered the Dutch economy until today. Travelling and commerce lead to new encounters.

To help Rovers and Rangers to fulfil the expectations of their citizenship and to support their step to adulthood, these Dutch roots can help to promote tolerance, foster future perspectives and help overcome differences. To help bridge the challenges of today’s youth in society, the Roverway educational objectives are:




Rovers and Rangers will challenge themselves to approach others in debate, to foster tolerance and develop a constructive and critical mindset about their role in society and to find an answer to the question how they can contribute to challenges ahead?



Rovers and Rangers will be bolstered to become an active European citizen, equipped to gain a place in the economy and know their strengths and weaknesses.



Rovers and Rangers will be inspired to be open and curious to others, understanding the challenges of diversity and minorities in an inclusive society.

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.
