World Scout Moot
|World Scout Moot|
|Country||various (list below)|
The World Scout Moot is a gathering of older Scouts, mainly Rover Scouts, ages 18–26 (although there was no upper age limit for the earlier Moots) from all over the world. Moots are held every four years and are organized by the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM).
The original name was World Rover Moot, which was later changed to World Moot (because the term Rover was less and less used) and later to World Scout Moot. Moot is also a generic term used for a gathering of any size for scouts of this age group. The word "moot" was Old English and originally meant a meeting or assembly.
The World Scout Jamboree is a similar event, also organized by the WOSM, for Scouts aged 14–17.
The most recent World Scout Moot was due to be held in Mozambique in 2008, but was held at the Rowallan Scout Camp near Nairobi, Kenya in 2010. The next one will be in Quebec, Canada, 75km North of the Capital Ottawa in 2013.
