Education and World Scout Movement: Experiences and Challenges
(Last Update 22th February 2012). As a key outcome of the Centenary activities, WOSM launched a global project to build a "knowledge base" for people who engaged in a process of collective learning about Scouting. The first step of this project was the World Scientific Congress. The proceeding is the result of researchers, academics, UN and NGO representatives and of course Scout Leaders' contributions.

This "community" shares a passion of education and or scouting and expects to learn how to do it better. We want to share extensively the results of this congress as a first step to improve our collective knowledge and practices. The Scout Movement will, with no doubt, greatly benefit from providing better Scouting for more young people.

You can find here some of the output of the World Scientific Congress. More files will be available soon.
