Decision-making

World Triennial Plan

As we transition from Vision 2023, World Scouting has dedicated significant effort over the past year to developing the World Triennial Plan 2024-2027. This comprehensive plan outlines our immediate strategic priorities and objectives for the next three years, setting the stage for Scouting’s continued growth and impact. By building on past successes and introducing innovative goals, the World Triennial Plan will guide us in expanding Scouting to more young people and reaching new communities. This roadmap aims to ensure Scouting’s relevance and continued positive impact on millions of young people worldwide.

Triennial Plan development journey

The draft World Triennial Plan 2024-2027 was created through a meticulous process involving research, prioritisation, and validation phases. Now presented for approval at the 43rd World Scout Conference, the draft plan has been shaped by input from a diverse range of stakeholders within the Movement. This collaborative approach ensures that the plan continues to enhance our impact and foster growth. To learn more about the development journey read Conference Document 6A and Conference Document 6B. 

The objectives of the World Triennial Plan 2024-2027 emphasise outcomes, an important point as we move forward with a plan that is adaptable to meet specific contexts and needs at all levels of Scouting. By focusing on transformative objectives – rather than in-depth details on specific methods – we maintain flexibility and enhance the impact of our collective efforts. We have also included ideas from the engagement process to offer potential actions that the next World Scout Committee, regions, and NSOs could take to achieve these outcome focused objectives.
