What? The World Scout Conference is the governing body of WOSM. This is where the member organisations consider the policy and standards of the Scout Movement, formulate the general policy of the World Organization, and take the action required to further the purpose of the Movement.
Who? Each National Scout Organization can send a maximum of six delegates and a number of observers to take part in the event. There are no age restrictions for delegates or observers.
When? The World Scout Conference takes place every three years, in conjunction with the World Scout Youth Forum. The first Conference took place in 1920 in England. Slovenia hosted the 40th World Scout Conference in 2014, and the 41st World Scout Conference will take place in Azerbaijan in 2017.
