9th World Scout Youth Forum - Summary
A great success of the 9th World Scout Youth Forum
181 young participants gathered in Hammamet, Tunisia, from 29 August to 1 September. It was the fourth forum linked to the World Scout Conference.
The World Scout Youth Forum offered young people the opportunity to discuss and express their views on subjects of interest to them, in their global, national and local realities. They prepared recommendations for the World Scout Committee.
The main topics were the following:
- Challenges for young global citizens: Global issues and the UN’s Millennium Development Goals; what can we do as Scouts?
- Challenges in young peoples’ lives: Discussing the main challenges that young people meet in their personal lives today in the various parts of the world, and what support they need to overcome difficulties
- Challenges in Scouting: Items from the agenda of the World Scout Conference; The Strategic Priorities; Development of Youth Involvement in WOSM.
The event was a great opportunity for the participants who had the possibility to meet representatives of UNICEF and Millennium Campaign, facilitators of many of the activities.
The programme “Scouts of the World” and “Youth of the World” was launched and well received by the participants.
It was a fantastic event that provided the participants with a good experience just prior to the World Scout Conference.
