What is a Moot?
The World Scout Moot is an international gathering of 18 to 25 year olds from around the world. 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. Every four years, the Moot takes place in different host country. The first Moot took place in 1931 in Switzerland, with the last two hosted in Iceland and Canada. The next Moot will be hosted by Scouting Ireland in 2021. The theme for this Moot is le chéile (leh kay-la) which translates to ‘together’. There is an old saying in the Irish language; “ní neart go cur le chéile” which means “there is no strength without unity”. The Moot will bring together thousands of Scouts from across the world, to share cultures, learn from each other and gain new skills.
