For the purpose of "exploring the different gastronomical cultures throughout Europe", we kindly ask you to bring a traditional cake (or similar) from your country to the forum.

Also, we would kindly ask you to send us the text to a traditional song from your country (preferably one that is reasonably easy to learn) by email. All the songs, we receive, will be included in a booklet, which will be used during the forum and afterwards made available online.

The songs will be posted on this website as we receive them.

Host information

The forum as well as this website is jointly hosted by the Joint Committee of Girl Guides in Denmark and the Danish Scout Council.
