World Scout Moot

An international gathering for young adult Scouts! Be sure not to miss this event for 18-25 year olds. The 16th Moot is being hosted by Scouting Ireland in 2022!

About the Moot

The World Scout Moot is an event for Network members, gathering together up to 5000 people. The Moot happens every four years taking place in a different country each time. Past host countries include Switzerland, Taiwan, Mozambique, and Australia! The last Moot took place in Iceland in 2017. 

Participants must normally be 18–25 years old at the time of the event. If you are 26 or older you can be part of the International Service Team 

In 2017, Alice attended the World Scout Moot in Iceland. She was a member of West Warwickshire Explorers at the time and created a video of her journey!

The Next World Scout Moot

Ireland welcomes the world to the 16th World Scout Moot. The entry point to the Moot will be Dublin City. Mixed international Patrols will then explore the many wonders of Ireland on a collection of trails across the island. The Patrols will then return to Dublin for the Base Camp feature of the Moot.

The theme for this Moot is Le Chéile (leh kay-la) which translates to ‘together’.

Past World Scout Moots

The first World Scout Moot was in Switzerland in 1931 and subsequent  gatherings were held almost every four years until 1961. The 13th World Scout Moot was held in Kenya in 2010 – the first ever such event to take place in Africa. Moots provide an opportunity for young adults in Scouting to meet together with the objective of improving their international understanding as citizens of the world.
