Helen Storrow Seminar Report

Since 1986 WAGGGS has been offering the Helen Storrow Seminar to young women at Our Chalet – our World Centre in Switzerland.
This International event is a unique opportunity for Leadership development, as it addresses one of the most relevant issues in contemporary society –
Environmental Sustainability.

The HSS 2021 was not held in Switzerland due to the Covid19 restrictions ,so we had the first virtual HSS.

It started on 1st through 23rd of Oct 2021. We had our patrols and I was in patrol 2 .
We explored sessions on WAGGGS Leadership Modules and the SDGs, with focus on Biodiversity and Climate Change.
We also had a very fantastic cultural night where I shared about my culture and NGGA.
We were given tasks to prepare our project pitch and my project pitch was really appreciated by all, I proposed to work on clean water and sanitation in some communities in Lagos.
This project would focus on open defecation and water pollutions in Lagos.

My HSS experience was fantastic and yeah I can’t wait to kick off my project and start
Leading Change for an Equitable, Nature-Positive, Carbon-Neutral World Which was our theme for 2021.
