The official World Scout Education Congress Report is now available! The Report includes background about the event, the Congress itself, the outcomes and conclusions as well as the steps forward.
The aim of the Congress was simple but ambitious: to bring together key leaders from around the globe to discuss issues related to the educational mission of Scouting. The 1st World Scout Education Congress was created to be an opportunity to learn, to share, to be inspired, to link people and to give direction to the future.
A great way for National Scout Organizations to take action based on the Report is to take part in the Congress Challenge. It consists of three simple steps:
1. Analyse! Go through the Congress report with your National Board and identify the trends that affect your NSO and your membership the most,
2. Take Action! Plan an activity/project (short-term or long-term) through which you will address the impact the trend you have identified has on Scouting in your local community, and finally
3. Let the World Know! Tell others in our World Scouting family what you’ve been doing by posting a blog entry on scout.org and in social media using the hashtag #congresschallenge!
