World Scout Youth Forum
The World Scout Youth Forum provides an opportunity for young members of World Scouting to discuss and express their views on issues of interest to them. Through preparing inputs and making recommendations to the World Scout Conference and to the World Scout Committee, to which the Forum is linked, participants will develop the skills necessary to strengthen their capacity to take part in decision-making processes.
Each National Scout Organization is invited to send a delegation to the World Scout Youth Forum. Only individuals who are members of WOSM can be delegates to the World Scout Youth Forum. The participants must be between their 18th and 26th birthdays in the year of the Forum.
The 11th World Scout Youth Forum took place in Brazil, from 3 - 6 January 2011, just prior to the 39th World Scout Conference.
União dos Escoteiros do Brasil (UEB), the National Scout Organization of Brazil, hosted the World Scout Youth Forum.
From 8 to 12 July, 2002, 139 participants, of which 111 also attended the World Scout Conference, from 47 countries and all 6 world regions met in Metsovo, Greece, for the 8th World Scout Youth Forum.
