Candidate announcement

Better Scouting for more young people

„After serving on the World Scout Committee 2021-2024, I am honored to accept the German Guide and Scout Federation’s nomination to the World Scout Committee 2024-2027.

The launch of the next Strategy for Scouting at the World Scout Conference in Egypt marks a critical juncture for World Scouting. Implementing it well will ensure that National Scout Organizations of all sizes and the global Scout Movement thrive in the coming decade.

I’m committed to continuing my service in World Scouting, offering my experience and expertise to ensure that all young people, everywhere, can benefit from relevant, inclusive and safe educational opportunities in Scouting. „

What we should focus on

Priorities for World Scouting

Scouting provides life-changing learning experiences for young people in a world that is constantly evolving. World Scouting deserves a World Scout Committee that focuses on today’s and tomorrow’s most pressing and impactful issues and supports National Scout Organizations. For the young people we serve, we must stay relevant. For and with the National Scout Organizations WOSM serves, we must be resilient in the face of uncertainty. For WOSM’s own structures, we must be responsive and evolve so we can stay fit for purpose.



The world around is changing fast and so are the needs of the young people Scouting serves and the adults supporting them. We need to innovate for impact: find new ways of remaining a relevant space for young people in their educational journey, and for the volunteers in need of more flexible volunteering modes.



Our commitment to resilience ensures a sustainable and thriving future for Scouting, including a new focus on safeguarding and wellbeing and inclusivity as our license to operate



We need to adapt our structures so they are fit for purpose, adaptable and influential. It also includes: strengthen good governance practices, better align global and regional work, lead by example on youth empowerment, and sharpen Scouting’s image as a powerful force for good
