Registration

Registration is now open!

Registration to attend the 43rd World Scout Conference is open! Scroll down to learn more about the registration process, fees, and more. Make sure to register before the deadline on 17 June 2024.

How to register

NSO Official Contacts (as listed in the World Scouting Directory) will receive a delegation registration form from WOSM, and should use it to submit their appointed list delegates and observers for the Conference. Nominees will then receive a unique individual registration link by email and be invited to complete the registration and payment process using the online registration system. 
 
If you are a member of a National Scout Organization (NSO) who wishes to participate in the Conference as delegate or observer, please check that your NSO’s Official Contact has nominated you to receive an individual registration link.
 
Other guests may also attend by invitation only. Invited partners, special guests, and members of the World and Regional Scout Committees will receive separate registration emails.

Delegation size and diversity

Up to 2,000 participants will gather for the Conference either in-person or online. All major sessions and some breakout activities will be live-streamed, enabling more participants to tune-in and follow the event.
 
Up to six delegates and six observers from each Member Organization can initially register to attend the event. This quota reflects the venue’s capacity and ensures the fair representation of delegates from all 174 Member Organizations. 
 
Member Organizations wishing to appoint additional observers to their delegation can submit a list of extra names before 17 May 2024 to our waiting list. Individuals registered on the waiting list will receive confirmation whether or not they can attend shortly after 17 May 2024. This will be dependent on overall registration numbers and the capacity of the venue.
All Member Organizations are encouraged to ensure that their delegation reflects the diversity of Scouting in their country – taking into consideration factors such as gender, age, and cultural representation. In line with the Conference Rules of Procedure, Member Organizations are also strongly encouraged to ensure that at least one third of their delegates and one third of their observers are young people under the age of 30.

Head of Delegation
