PAGGS is an international twin town cooperation involving Guides, Scouts, Boys and Girls Brigade from the following towns – P – Paisley (Scotland) A – Apeldoorn (The Netherlands) G – Gagny (France) G – Gladsaxe (Denmark) S – Sutton (England) – – Minden (Germany) – – Wilmersdorf (Germany) – – Pardubice (Czech Republic) It started as a leader’s conference in 1970 between five twin towns with the first letters P-A-G-G-S.

The conference was a success, with many new friendships made, it became annual event, with the towns taking turns hosting the conference. After a while the concept was expanded with a camp instead of a conference every other year. Today new towns have joined in, but the original name still sticks.
