Building on the success and learning

  • 1. Jan 2007

A resource to help Scouts build on the success and learning from the world-level Centenary projects considering: vision and objectives, thinking strategically, communicating effectively, adapting to the local reality and challenging yourselves.

The Centenary of Scouting was a large and important long-term project for World Scouting. This was a challenge as World Scouting has a history of focusing on three year cycles from one World Scout Conference to the next World Scout Conference. This section outlines the approach taken, recognising that the work continued over more than a 10 year period from conception to delivery and that there were many changes in volunteers on committees and staff supporting the project during this time. It highlights some of the successes and identifies some of the pitfalls in the planning, preparation and delivery of the Centenary activities. It is hoped that National Scout Organizations can learn from this as they begin, or continue to prepare for, their own celebrations.
