New Youth Advisors to the 2017-2020 World Scout Committee elected!
Congratulations to our new Youth Advisors – Diana Carrillo Tiburcio (Mexico), Mori Chi-kin Cheng (Hong Kong), Julius Kramer (Sweden), Edgar Marumbu (Kenya), Martin Meier (Liechtenstein) and Amal Ridene (Tunisia)!
These six outstanding young people were selected via the first-ever e-voting process from among 14 candidates who hailed from different Scout Regions across the world.
In the next three years, the Youth Advisors will attend World Scout Committee (WSC) meetings and work as part of its substructures. They are also expected to contribute to all discussions, debates, and work, representing the voice of young people.
The Youth Advisors present an ideal opportunity to include young volunteers in the external representation of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM).
One of the six elected Youth Advisors forms part of the Steering Committee of the WSC, while two of the six elected Youth Advisors form part of the Planning Committee of the next World Scout Youth Forum (WSYF) in accordance with the WSYF Guidelines. They will work with other team members to plan the main content of the programme and agenda of the next WSYF and present it to the WSC for approval.
Apart from reporting regularly to online and offline platforms for young people, the Youth Advisors will present a final report of their activities over the past triennium to the WSC and the WSYF.
With the elections of these new Youth Advisors, we are looking forward to continue to strengthen youth involvement in the decision-making process of WOSM in the coming triennium.
