This conference allows member organisations to consider the policies and standards of the Scout Movement, formulate the general policy of the World Organization and to take the required actions to further the purpose of the Movement. The Conference takes place every three years.
The 40th World Scout Conference will take place from 11 till 15 August 2014 in Ljubljana. Each National Scout Organization can send a maximum of six delegates and a number of observers to take part in the event.
