Programme

Side events and networking sessions

The World Scout Conference and Youth Forum will feature a dedicated space on the digital participation platform to enable Member Organizations and other key partners to organise side events and networking sessions.

Side events and networking sessions

Connecting participants together

The side events and networking sessions will offer a chance for participants to connect, mingle and interact in virtual roundtable settings. The programme of side events and networking sessions provides an excellent opportunity for Member Organizations and partners to discuss the themes of the events, share ideas and information, engage in policy discussions, and celebrate major milestones.

The side events and networking sessions will last no longer than 1 hour and 30 minutes, and will take place outside of the time slots reserved for plenary sessions. The Planning Team will support hosts to find a suitable time for side events and networking sessions to happen in line with the overall agenda.
