The sun is rising on a new century of Scouting.

When joining millions of other Scouts in the renewal of the Promise let us thank all those who made it possible for us to live the unique, exciting and involving experience of Scouting, starting with our Founder BP.

We live in times of increasing disparities, world wide intolerance, tensions and growing conflicts. Irresponsible life-styles and wild consumerism are seriously putting our planet's environmental stability at risk.

As “citizens of the world”, we have a responsibility.

As Scouts our duty is to actively engage for creating a better world.

Let's be firmly guided by our common Promise and face the future with optimism and courage.

As sisters and brothers, recognising in every human being a friend, whatever her or his beliefs or situation, let's devote all our energies to building Peace.

Secretary General
