Circular No. GLB-C18-2021

Dear friends,

At its March 2021 meeting, the World Scout Committee (WSC) conducted its triennial review of the World Scout Event participation fee categories as previously communicated through Circular 32/2018.

The WSC has considered the need for stable and predictable fee categories in light of the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on local membership in National Scout Organizations (NSOs), and concerns expressed by NSOs during Regional Conferences in the past triennium. As such, the WSC has decided to realign the World Scout Event participation fee categories to make the categories identical again with the ones applicable to NSOs for their WOSM annual registration fee. These fee categories are based on the World Bank data on Gross National Income per capita (GNIpc) and set by Conference Resolution 2011-02. A table overview of the fee categories can be found through this link.

These participation fee categories will be applicable for the 2022 World Scout Moot (Ireland) and 2023 World Scout Jamboree (Republic of Korea), as well as any forthcoming World Scout Events for which the participation fees are still to be set by the WSC. The WSC has also decided to keep these fee categories in place until the World Scout Conference approves a new WOSM registration fee system.

Following the approval by the WSC of fees for the upcoming World Scout Events, the Hosts of the World Scout Moot and World Scout Jamboree will soon release an update to Heads of Contingents to facilitate further planning and registration for these World Scout Events.

If you have any questions regarding this change to the World Scout Event participation fee categories, please contact Jacob Murray, Director, World Events at the World Scout Bureau at [email protected].


Yours in Scouting,
