Moot 2017 – IST

Are you aged over 25, want to learn new skills, make international friends and create an amazing experience for 5000 young people? Why not join The Moot and help create a once in a lifetime experience against the dramatic backdrop of Iceland.

If you are a scout or a guide and were born on or before 1st August 1991 you are eligible to join the UK Contingent International Service Team (IST).

Make The Moot Happen!

The Moot cannot happen without the help of the International Service Team (IST). Roles could include building the camp, providing activities or ensuring that the camp runs smoothly. You could use your scouting or guiding skills or you may decide to take on a brand new role and learn something new. As part of your experience, you will be working closely with other scouts and guides from around the world.

UK Contingent Events

In the lead up to the Moot, the UK contingent will meet for two briefing weekends to prepare for the event, find out more about the theme of Change and bond as a contingent. More details on the briefing weekends will be provided once the contingent has been selected.

As well as attending the Moot itself, all UK contingent IST members can take part in an exclusive post-moot event to discover the stunning scenery of Iceland. Further details will be provided closer to the event.

More information about The Moot can be found on the official Iceland webpage.
