Association (UK) headquarters, which also appears on the official
national website : http://www.scoutbase.org.uk Further enquiries can be

Bden-Powell House. I for one am pleased that the Scout Association is
making use of IT as a means of communication. Already the " Talking Points"
bulletin, sent to every county, district and group with information from
HQ about new programmes, decisions of the Committee of the Council etc.
is also available on electronic distribution. Eventually every HQ
department should have an email address facilitating direct communication.

Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting
World Scouting Exhibition Stand (F47)
World Scouting is exhibiting at the Commonwealth Heads of Government
Meeting (Edinburgh, 21st -25th October 1997). The Movement plays an
important role in the Commonwealth, as every member country has a Scout
Organisation. The stand (F47) offers an interesting and informative look
at World Scouting today.
Scouting has more than 25 million members in over 200 countries and
territories. Its aim is to help young people develop their potential in
four areas: Physical, Social, Spiritual and Intellectual. The objective
of Scouting is to help its members grow as individuals, as responsible
citizens, and as part of their local, national and international
This is done through following a constantly updated and modernised
programme of activities. The award scheme allows young people to work
towards goals, while forming friendships with others from both home and
Scouting is unique in being the only youth Movement that has a Promise
and Law. Members must accept these before they can join Scouting.
Scouting in the UK, which has over half a million members, is firmly
committed to co-education, allowing both boys and girls the opportunities
to grow and meet the challenges it provides. It is also committed to
equal opportunities for young people and leaders.
