Six Challenges :

Six challenges were identified at the Durban Conference and need to be addressed to achieve our mission are:

  1. Relevance: meeting the needs and aspirations of young people.
  2. Complementary nature: focusing on the distinctive contribution Scouting can make to the education of young people, particularly through the Scout Method.
  3. Membership: reaching out to more young people.
  4. Adults: attracting and retaining the adults we need.
  5. Relationships and partnerships: working with others to better serve young people.
  6. Unity: pursuing a common purpose at all levels.

The Three Strategic Areas:

The six challenges provide three broad areas of work:

  1. Young People: encompassing the challenges on Relevance, Complementary nature and Membership in order to bring better Scouting to more young people, especially adolescents.
  2. Adults: encompassing the challenge on Adults: attracting and retaining the adults we need, with an emphasis on the concept of volunteering.
  3. Structures and Systems: encompassing the challenge on Relationships and partnerships - which recognises the need to work with others to serve young people - and the challenge on Unity: pursuing a common purpose at all levels. Work in this strategic area should lead to an increase in the overall effectiveness of the Movement.
