Scouting is a worldwide Movement with over 30 million Scouts in 160 countries. International Scouting is aimed at creating an understanding of other cultures as well as promoting peace and tolerance through our common understanding of the Scouting Aims and Principles.
International Scouting involves relationships with other National Scout Organisations (NSOs) around the world. These relationships involve international events and projects, the Scouts International Student Exchange (SISEP), Jamboree On The Air / Jamboree On The Internet (JOTA/JOTI), and the Pen-Pal Program. International Scouting is also about developing Scouts’ awareness of their place within the worldwide Movement.
The World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) is split up into five regions, and Scouts Australia is one of 25 National Scout Organisations in the Asia-Pacific Region (APR). Scouts Australia has Members actively involved in APR committees and sub-committees, and also helps developing countries in the Asia-Pacific Region by providing support and specialist people and skills to assist them.
