More Scouts and leaders commit to gender equality
The Scout Movement forged new partnership with UN Women’s HeForShe initiative at the 41st World Scout Conference in Azerbaijan, inspiring millions of Scouts all over the world to strive for a more gender-equal world. During the 6th ASEAN Scout Jamboree in Tagum, Philippines from 27 November to 2 December 2017, over 1,000 Scouts and leaders from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand commit to gender equality.
Over the next three years, both organizations will collaborate to increase awareness about gender equality and women’s empowerment, and inspire young people to take action.
