A 100,0000 welcomes to all Scouts worldwide

The 16th World Scout Moot will take place in Ireland in July 2021 (dates to be confirmed shortly). The entry point to the Moot will be Dublin City. International Patrols will then explore the many wonders of Ireland on a collection of exciting and interesting trails in local countryside. The Patrols will then return to Dublin for the base camp feature of the Moot before returning home.


Invitations and communications to International Commissioners will begin shortly.


Participation is via a National contingent and all bookings are done through the NSO and appointed contingent leader

The cost of the Moot will be confirmed shortly by the World Scout Committee but will be in line with the last Moot in Iceland and the World Scout Jamboree in USA.


Ireland is easily accessible via direct flights to Ireland or via major European hub airports.


The Moot planning team will also include a pre-moot and post-moot support team for those participants who wish to spend a longer period in Ireland. Pre and post Moot programme will be an additional cost to the Moot fee.

Ireland - it has to be the best place in the world!

Ireland is an island off the western coast of Europe. It is a wild and wonderful place with friendly people, ancient and lively culture, a place to lose and find yourself. The landscape is a mixture of mystical rural landscapes and wild and rugged western coastlands. Major international cities exist around the island – Dublin, Belfast, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford.


The Irish people are its treasure – always friendly and welcoming, talkers and storytellers. Culture and heritage are all around – castles and ancient



historical sites are ever present in the landscape. Irish people are full of wit and good humour, they love the ‘craic’ (an Irish word for having and making fun).


Traveling around Ireland is easy with extensive roadways, rail and bus links. The countryside can be explored via laid out trails and walk/cycle routes or just be exploring as you go. Some of the most incredible scenery you could ever imagine is only 20 minutes away from all its major cities.

International Service Staff - IST

We will require 750 IST for the Moot. In the short term we will be seeking volunteers with relevant experience and expertise to work on the main planning team from January 2019. A call for volunteers in this area will be issued shortly.


The larger number of IST will be required during the event and volunteers can apply via their National Contingent Leaders when bookings are open.


We expect that around a 33% of the IST team will be Irish and 66% from the different countries attending the Moot. Following WOSM´s guidelines for World Scout Moots no participating country can have more than 100 IST members and contingents cannot have more IST members than participants.
