The World Scout Moot is an international event for Scouts aged 18-26 by the start of the Moot. The 16th World Scout Moot will take place from 18th–28th July 2022. The Moot is one of the official World Scout Events.

The entry point to the Moot will be Dublin City. International Patrols will then explore the many wonders of Ireland on a collection of exciting and interesting trails across the island. The Patrols will then return to Dublin for the Base Camp feature of the Moot before returning home.

The Moot’s entry point (a Dublin City Centre location) and departure point (Malahide Castle) are both in Dublin. Malahide Castle is close to Dublin Airport, and approximately 15 km from Dublin city centre, where Dublin Port is located, from which there are numerous daily ferries to the UK.  

We expect approximately 6,000 people to attend the 16th World Scout Moot. This will be made up of 5,000 participants and an International Service Team complement of 750 – 1000. Based on this figure, the maximum size of any one contingent can be 600 people including participants, International Service Team and Contingent Management Team.
