How did Meitlipfadi shape Switzerland?

“So how to lead, that’s what you’ve learned!” Here’s what someone should know: Sibyll Kindlimann (89) of Schwanden GL was the Leitlipfad National Lead early – and is a walking scouting story: part of it from 1944, active at federal level from 1958, federal leader from 1971-1979 and from 1979 to 1983, president of the Swiss Scout Association (BSP). When Meitlipfadi and Bubenpfadi merged in 1987 after five years of difficult negotiations, she was co-chair of the mergers committee. Co-chair, because the committee was chairman of Meitli and one of the Bubenpfadi (Swiss Scout Association). But more on that later.

In the conversation, Kindlimann asks quite early if I, the interviewer, was also in Meitlipfadi. I am. “Then we say thank you,” says who in Scouting was also called “Bill” – because of her voice, which was always deep – “not because I smoked, by the way!”
