Global Youth Consultation to Shape the Future of the Scout Movement

As part of the consultation, a survey in six languages was developed and made available through the Youth Talks online platform. A series of activities have also been created by the Youth Talks team to help Scout leaders and volunteers engage young people in a conversation about their hopes for the future.

“Young people face growing inequalities, climate change, loss of biodiversity, health and energy crises and problems related to the use of new technologies. The complexity of these social, economic, environmental and societal challenges are testing the limits of our current educational models,” said Marine Hadengue, Director of Youth Talks. “With Youth Talks, we are at the start of a much-needed conversation with young people about how to co-build a future by and for young people around the world, and better understand their aspirations for the society they want to build today. ‘today. and tomorrow.”

The global youth consultation will use the latest research methods and artificial intelligence developed by technology and consulting firm Bluenove to analyze intelligence, data and insights collected on youth trends which may also be shared with others. other partners, academic institutions and non-governmental organizations.

Alongside the global consultation, WOSM will hold a series of focus groups with young people, adult volunteers and leaders from 172 National Scout Organizations to inform the development of its new strategy for Scouting.
