Information about the Southern Europe sub-region
Cyprus, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland South
Cyprus is the 3rd largest island in the Mediterranean and it is situated at the Crossroads of three Continents, Europe, Asia and Africa. This geographic position has since antiquity played an important part in the island’s turbulent history. Its prehistoric age inhabitants were joined by the Mycenaeans
Greek 3500 years ago, who introduced and established their civilization, thus permanently instilling the island’s Greek roots. Many other cultures followed since then, including Phoenicians, Assyrians, Franks, Venetians, Ottomans and British, all leaving behind visible traces of their passage. The island is an open-air museum.
The Workshop in Porto, Portugal has been postponed to further notice, due to the corona vírus. As soon as we have the new date we will get back to you.
The Southern Europe subregion workshop, organised by FEGA (Federação de Escoteiros e Guias Adultos), will focus on environment. From 27 till 31 March 2020 in the city of Porto in Portugal, the workshop will bring together ISGF members from Europe.
