lizigLucienne Geraud, born Lucienne Sournac was best known under the pseudonym Lizig Geraud-Keraod. She was the wife of Pierre Geraud, called Perig Géraud-Keraod. They met in Montauban (France) where she was Akela in the same group as him and they got married in 1941. 

She participated with him in the adventure of the foundation and structuring of Scouts of Europe. She is the instigator of the major changes in this movement pedagogy specifically the female branch of Guides of Europe. A remarkable person on a human, cultural and spiritual level. Her funeral took place today, Tuesday, May 7, 2013 in Chateaubriand (Loire Atlantique).
Dear Lizig thank you for such dedication to the European Scouting!
With all the Guides and Scouts of Europe today, and all those who preceded them, we pray for you.



“Live the Scout Adventure!”
Here is the theme for the Scout Film Festival in its 5th edition.

The festival was born in 2002 on the initiative of the French Confederation of Scouting which includes the “Eclaireurs Neutres de France” (Neutral Scouts of France), the “Fédération des Eclaireurs et Eclaireuses” (Federation of Scouts and Girl Scouts) as well as the Association of Guides and Scouts of Europe.

This day is an opportunity to see the movies in competition of less than a minute and less than fifteen minutes all made by scouts. Open to all branches as well as scoutmaster groups and regardless of the nationality (French subtitles must be included), this event is an opportunity to develop new skills, meet Scouts from other movements and promote the scouting spirit on the screen.

Christophe Charly, the head of the festival, also plans novelties for this year with the opening of a forum with scout writers and illustrators like Emmanuel Beaudesson, Bruno Robert, Laure Bonnet, and a picture exhibition.
