16th World Scout Moot, Ireland, 19th –29th July 2021

The World Scout Moot is an international gathering of 18 to 25 year olds from around the world. Every four years, the Moot takes place in a different host country.   This time, 6000 people, 5000 participants and an International Service Team of 750 – 1000, are expected to attend.

Participants must have been born on or between 20th July 1995 and 19th July 2003. International Service Team (IST) must be aged 26 and over (born on or before 19th July 1995).  IST will be expected to be present at the Moot from the 17th to the 31st July 2021.

The theme for this Moot is Le Chéile (leh kay-la) which translates to ‘together’.  The programme will begin with an opening gathering in Dublin city centre on the morning of the 19th of July 2021. From there, International patrols will spend six days on trails around the Irish countryside.  Each trail has been carefully designed to provide opportunities for community interaction, cultural exploration, adventure activities and exposure to nature.  Patrols will then return to basecamp in Dublin for four days of activity and programme.  Base Camp will have a Global Development Village where various workshops will be hosted, a contingent village where you can learn about the different countries and cultures coming together at the Moot, a big central area for ceremonies and social events and various food houses where you can try local cuisine from around the world.

International Patrols of 10 participants will be formed before the event and they will have time to get to know each other via social media.  A tribe of 4 international patrols will travel together during the trails section and live together back at base camp.

The UK Contingent base fees are:

£995 per participant

£895 per International Service Team (IST) member

A number of add-on packages are also available – you can add on travel, a pre-event programme in Belfast and/or post event programme in Dublin (participants only) and additional tours.

The UK Contingent are committed to reducing financial barriers as much as possible. As such, for the first time there is a grant application process alongside recruitment. Please read about it on the grants page.

Applications are now open, deadline 3rd May 2020


Places will be allocated via a ballot system after applications close.  It is expected that there will be 500 UK Contingent participant places, plus IST.
