We gathered for another day at the 42nd World Scout Conference – an eventful day of exhibition showcases, tracking our progress towards Vision 2023, and understanding our roadmap to achieve it by taking an in-depth look at the draft World Triennial Plan 2021-2024. We also actively participated in a productive Q&A session to discuss the Draft Resolutions.
In the Conference Live Studio before the day 2 plenary session, we heard an update on the exciting programme that has been happening during the virtual event and what not to miss in the upcoming agenda. Tune in early each day before the plenary to be inspired by special guests and fellow Scouts from around the world!
Together, we also celebrated the over the last triennium and extended a warm welcome to new Member Organizations who joined our Scouting family in the last four years.
World Scouting experienced strong growth throughout the past triennium, adding new youth members and volunteers at all levels of the Movement and providing an opportunity for even more young people to experience Scouting’s transformative non-formal educational Youth Programme.
