The Academy 2021 was a unique event that connected 100 Scouts & Guides from 33 different countries in an online gamified way.
Peer groups was one of the core elements of the event.
Based on the symbolic framework and as part of the gamification of the event each peer group was the crew of their own spaceship hub (each named after a fictional spaceship). Their crew mission was also to complete a project for transferring the Academy learning beyond the event.
Peer group projects had an important place in the Academy. Built by the peer groups collectively during regular meetings, their main objectives were to encourage productive networking between peers, but also to share the word for the impact of Scouting & Guiding and how we can react in a changing environment.
