Announced on the 16 July 2008 at the 38th World Scout Conference in Korea, the Association des Scouts du Canada will host the 14th World Scout Moot in August 2013. The activities will take place in Quebec and Ontario, Canada. The main venue will be a scout camp, situated to the north-west of Montreal and surrounded by the beautiful Laurentian Mountains.
There will be a focus on the following four values: self-accomplishment through introspection and interaction with others; responsible and long-lasting commitment, international solidarity and the social contribution of Scouting.
The theme of the event is "Land of Paths! Land of Commitments! Land of Success!" "Land of Paths" aspires to be a crossroads of ideas, cultures and beliefs of the various participating countries. The projects will give these young adults an opportunity to explore their convictions, beliefs and hopes. The sharing of successes will help them to encourage and spread goodwill, and reconfirm their commitment to creating a better world to live in.
Update on 13th World Scout Moot – Kenya 2010
The Kenya Scouts Association presented a progress report on the 13th World Scout Moot which is scheduled to take place at the end of July 2010.
The proposed venue for the event is Rowallan Camp, situated in Nairobi, with most of the facilities scheduled for refurbishment or renovation before the event. Several sites in different cities have also been identified to welcome expedition centres: Nyeri, Embu, Machakos and Mombasa.
The event will be composed of 2 main parts: one week community service (environment, health, education, heritage) with active travelling and inter-cultural experiences, African adventure in wilderness, organised and managed by the participants themselves with the support of the service team; and 4 days base camp activities to share their respective projects, enrich their experiences, learn more about the issues of today's world, meet various leaders (business, religious, NGO, etc.), build friendships and discover opportunities. Participants will be involved and be the real actors of the event.
