            GUIDING AND SCOUTING IN FINLAND

Guiding and Scouting were established simultaneously in Finland
in 1910.   The two separate Unions were merged to form a single
National Organization in  1972. The assosiation is called The Guides
and Scouts of Finland (Suomen  Partiolaiset - Finlands Scouter ry)
and consists of 18 Member Districts,   one of which is swedish-
speaking (Finlands Svenska Scouter rf - The Swedish-speaking
Guides and Scouts in Finland). The organization is affiliated to
the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) as well as to
the World Assosiation of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).
