The15th World Scout Moot will be in Iceland from July 25th to August 2nd 2017. It is an official event of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), hosted and organized by the Icelandic Boy and Girl Scout Association, for young people aged between 18 and 25 inclusive.
If you are a Scout in a National Scout Organization that is a member of WOSM and if you are born on or between the dates of 2nd August 1991 and 25th July 1999 you are eligible as a participant.

The Moot program starts with an opening ceremony in the capital city of Reykjavík in the morning of 25th July. Participants will then spend the day in the capital area, taking part in an organized program. In the afternoon the participants will be transported to one of the camps where they will spend the next four days. The camps will be in different locations along the southern coast of Iceland, with each location offering different program elements. Thus one camp will be located in a national park, next to a glacier and have a mountaineering focus, while another will be in a large town and have a focus on culture and community. The participants will decide their own Moot experience by signing up for the activities of their choice during registration, and that information will be used to form patrols and choose the relevant camp. This part of the Moot is called The Expedition.
On Saturday, 29th of July, all the participants will be transported to the Úlfljótsvatn Scout Centre for the third part of the Moot, which is called Althingi. The program at Althingi will include outdoor activities, workshops, roundtable discussions, challenges, campfires, diverse cultural activities and basically having a great time together.
The Closing Ceremony of the 15th World Scout Moot 2017 will be in the afternoon of August 2nd.
The plan is for 5.000 participants and 1.000 IST from 80 countries around the world to join the Moot in 2017.
