Participants

Association:

Girl Guides Australia and Girl Guiding New Zealand will be joining together to form one contingent for Eurojam 2020. In Australia, Guiding groups began to form from 1909, with groups in all 6 states by 1920. In 1926, a national organisation was formed. Over a million Australian women have been, or still are, Girl Guides! Scouting was brought to New Zealand by Lieutenant Colonel David Cossgrove, who served in the Boer War with Baden Powell. In 1908, a year before girls made the same request in Britain, Cossgrove’s youngest daughter Muriel requested that he form a similar organisation for girls. From her request, the Peace Scouts for girls was formed. In 1928, Peace Scouts became Girl Guides and New Zealand became one of the Founding Members of WAGGGS.

The Head of Contingent is Allison Hooper.

Country:

Australia and New Zealand are both island countries in the South Pacific ocean.
