More people are joining now than at any time in the last 50 years. But none of this happened by accident – this was part of our Vision Towards 2012. Together we have transformed Scouting. With new leadership, a revised programme, training and image, we are renewed and re-energised. We've still got work to do to finalise that. So now there's a new vision for Scouting beyond 2012 – this time to 2018.
Scouting's Vision Towards 2018
Scouting in 2018 will:
• Make a positive impact in our communities
• Prepare young people to be active citizens
• Embrace and contribute to social change
Scouting in 2018 will be:
• Shaped by young people in partnership with adults
• Enjoyed by more young people and more adult volunteers
• As diverse as the communities in which we live
Members of Scouting in 2018 will feel:
A wide consultation
To help develop the vision, we asked experts what they thought the world would look like in 2018 and how changes in society could affect Scouting.
In regional workshops across the UK we looked at how different generations worked together and how Scouting could develop.
Through a wide variety of events our young people and adults spoke up about the issues that were important to them. You can see the collated feedback in the document Shaping the Future Together.
The UK-wide launch
Between October 2010 and March 2011, Scouting's Vision Towards 2018 was shared at District Commissioner and Group Scout Leader forums across the country. It is now up to all of us to help bring the vision to life to ensure Scouting continues to prosper and grow.
‘We have achieved a great deal, but we still have challenges ahead. The last ten years have shown just how much we can achieve when we all work together. And I know that I am confident and excited about the future of Scouting.’
