"On 15 October we are launching a new online platform for World Scouting. It aims to bring together all the Scouts around the world in a permanent jamboree. It marks a fundamental mind-shift in our communications and will contribute to change the way we are doing business in World Scouting. Also, this moment is very special as we prepare to celebrate another JOTA-JOTI and we hope that this new platform will contribute to further engagement and exchange between Scouts worldwide. The changes to scout.org go beyond creating a new website. They reflect the way we see our Movement and its role in the lives of our members. We have created a platform which will provide constant learning, communication, sharing and development." - Scott Teare, Secretary General WOSM
