In the coming two years, the key task of the SPWG is to redraft significant sections of the GYG Organisational Principles to make them better suited to GYG’s current needs. At the moment, some parts of the Organisational Principles are incomplete, inconsistent and difficult to oversee, which sometimes results in the Oversight Committee having to explain and interpret unclear points.
The next GYG congress will take place in Seoul 2022, and the SPWG will play an important role in proposing clear and well written amendments to the GYG Organisational Principles to submit to congress. Also, the SPWG is very likely going to have the task to review and order amendments submitted by delegates.
