The Triennial Report 2008-2011 (Conference Document 3), together with the Reports of the Chairman of the World Scout Committee, of the Secretary General and of the World Treasurer, constitute part of the Triennial Review for the period 2008-2011 being presented to the 39th World Scout Conference in Brazil.
This innovative approach to reporting to the Conference is intended to enhance our communications with National Scout Organizations (NSOs) and with external audiences. As WOSM strives to position itself as the leading world-class organization for young people and achieve a higher profile worldwide in the 21st century, we also address our commitment to environmental issues and look for creative ways of communicating that move progressively away from paper-based reporting to electronic communications. We also face the challenge of our limited human and financial resources challenges – including budgetary constraints – and seek new ways of disseminating our message to a wider audience. This new approach, therefore, replaces the traditional form of printed Triennial Report which has been presented to previous World Scout Conferences.
