Scouting: Creator Par Excellence of Human and Social Capital, or Modern Adults Leading Post-modern Youngsters
SCOUTING WORLD CONGRESS Geneva 16-17 November 2007, Theme: Education and the World Scout Movement: Experiences and Challenges, Scouting: Creator par excellence of Human and Social Capital, or Modern Adults leading Post-modern Youngsters, Sir John Daniel, Commonwealth of Learning // Indeed, when I read your programme I felt immediately at home. The titles of your workshops are: moral and spiritual development; self-fulfilment; skills and knowledge; gender issues; employability; health education; youth participation; national development; culture of peace and inter-religious dialogue; education for sustainable development; world citizenship and the north-south divide; leadership and intercultural education. All these could have come from the agenda of a UNESCO meeting and maybe they did. I see that Federico Mayor, the former director-general of UNESCO is closing your conference.
