World Scout Inter-religious Symposium 




The World Scout Inter-religious Symposium (WSIS) is a gathering of representatives from National Scout Organizations and religious networks, some of which have consultative status with the World Scout Committee.

The symposium reinforces the value of Scouting as an institution that promotes inter-religious dialogue, tolerance, solidarity, and peace, and furthers the co-operation and understanding of inter-religious issues throughout the Scout Movement.

The WSIS takes place every three years and is coordinated by the World Scout Inter-religious Forum, a network of religious organisations in Scouting. Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the 6th WSIS has been postponed until further notice.
