In his speech, Azrul Azwar, mentioned a man name Robert Baden-Powell that later established the Scouting movement. This educational movement and organization has been proved for more than 100 years, that it can be the solution for young generation to develop themselves to become a good person and good citizen. Also, as Baden-Powell stated, through Scouting young people can learn how to contribute the positive way in their families, their communities, their countries, which can help to creating a better world for everyone.
