We had a very fruitful meeting and discussed among other things:

  • How to help and assist NSOs/NSAs to instigate and strengthen the spiritual dimension and the interreligious dialogue within their Youth and Adult programme.
  • How to introduce scouting within our communities.
  • How to promote the interreligious dialogue both on a local and global basis.
  • the Interreligious Badge Programme for Youth and the Interreligious Dialogue Network for Adults in Scouting (Mentors, Facilitators, and Advisors).
  • the Faith and Beliefs Zone at the World Scout Jamboree 2019.

A big thanks to Juan Reig as World Scout Committee Liaison and to Göran Hägerdal from the World Scout Bureau for joining and supporting us!
