Bidding for the 17th World Scout Moot (2025)

The World Scout Moot takes place every four years in a different country. It is an event for senior sections (traditionally called Rovers) and other young adult members, usually gathering up to 5,000 people. Moots provide an opportunity for young adults in Scouting to meet together and take part in activities that enable them to become active global citizens.  Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 25  at the time of the event. Individuals who are 26 years or older can take part as International Service Team members.

Motivational statement

Federação Escutista de Portugal (FEP) is strongly motivated and believes that hosting the 17th World Scout Moot will engage Scouts in acquiring best practices in cooperation, solidarity and mutual understanding with each other and local communities. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their competencies and skills by having a direct impact on their local, national and international communities, and will foster personal development by embracing the values of a peaceful equal society.

The World Scout Moot will promote the development of the Rover section programme around the world by sharing best practices between participants – and namely the Portuguese experience, considering the importance and strong tradition of the Rover programme in Portuguese Scouting. It will allow participants to visit and explore Portugal and its many opportunities, enabling future activities in partnership with Portuguese Scouts, both in Portugal and abroad.
