Every four years or so, the World Scout Movement holds an event for young adults aged between 18 and 25. This year, for the first time, the event will be held on African soil. So I am travelling to Nairobi in Kenya to join the 1500 young people from around the globe who will be taking part in the 13th World Scout Moot.
This will be my second Moot. In 1993, I was the deputy contingent leader of the Moot that was held in Kandersteg, Switzerland. This time, I attend as a member of the World Scout Committee. I’m expecting to work hard in support of our Kenyan hosts – and to enjoy being back in Africa. I will try to write regularly to keep people updated about the event’s progress.
