In International Rover Week, KISC aims to inspire you to create new initiatives and a better world in your own home country. During this event, you will be able to join us for the New Year’s celebration, but mainly you will be focusing on Youth Advocacy.
You can choose between two areas in your training:
There will be a selection process for the applicants, resulting in 31 young people coming together in the Swiss Alps to create change.
The programme consists of a virtual phase during December 2022 to get participants on board with the training. Starting 28th December, participants will have activities related to general knowledge about advocacy focusing on the bigger picture of the Global Challenges and Youth Trends by addressing the main considerations in the implementation of any initiative (innovation through digitalisation; monitoring, evaluation and reporting mechanisms and methodologies; Safe from Harm). Participants will then be into two working groups for the rest of the training, according to their personal interest: each focusing on the advocacy of 1) Peace Education & Human Rights and 2) Sustainability.
Throughout the year, we will gather in Kandersteg to celebrate 100 years of inspiring young people to create a better world.
Our vision is that the centenary will be the beginning of the next 100 years with Baden-Powell’s dream of a Permanent Mini Jamboree.
Kandersteg International Scout Centre has been run by volunteers since 1923. Join the team that creates lifelong memories.
