  • 1969-03 Declaration of PrincipleThe Boy Scouts World Conference: a) Asserts its belief that the ideals as set forth in "Scouting for Boys” are so fundamental as to transcend the limits of race and country. b) Records that the aims, basis and fundamental principles are defined by the World Scout Constitution (Articles III and IV). c) Declares that the Boy Scout Movement is a movement of national, international and universal character, the object of which is to endow each separate nation and the whole world with a youth which is spiritually, morally and physically strong. It is national in that it aims, through national organizations, at endowing every nation with useful and healthy citizens. It is international in that it recognizes no national barrier in the comradeship of the Scouts. It is universal in that it insists upon brotherhood between all Scouts of every nation, class or creed. d) Reaffirms its steadfast loyalty to the aims, principles and methods of Scouting for Boys, as inaugurated by the late Lord Baden-Powell, and its belief in the value of international Scouting in the promotion of understanding and goodwill among all peoples. e) Asserts that whilst membership in Scouting in any country should foster true patriotism, this should genuinely be kept within the limits of international cooperation and friendship irrespective of creed and race. Therefore 1. The Conference reaffirms that the conditions for international recognition of any national Scout organization (and its membership) are set forth in the Constitution of the Boy Scouts World Conference. Recognition does not represent intrusion into the field of politics, nor should it be considered by any government or official as affecting the sovereignty or diplomatic status of any country. 2. The Conference further re-affirms that “the aim of the Boy Scout Movement is to develop good citizenship among boys by forming their character, training them in habits of observation, obedience and self-reliance; inculcating loyalty and thoughtfulness for others; teaching them services useful to the public and handicrafts useful to themselves; promoting their physical, mental and spiritual development”.
  • 1969-04 Unity of ScoutingConvinced that the unity of the World Scout Movement in brotherhood, structure and action is of the highest importance in its efforts to serve the boys of the modern world and to bring Scouting to all boys desiring membership: The Conference having carefully studied the paper presented by the British delegation entitled “The Unity of the World Scout Movement", is deeply impressed by its relevance in a divided world. It recommends a careful study of this paper by all member countries and by the World Committee. It also requires that every effort be made to put into practice as soon as possible the proposals for unity and practical Scout internationalism contained in it and that its spirit guide the work of the World Movement. It directs the World Committee to ensure that any new country wishing to apply for membership of the Conference shall be encouraged and helped as necessary to establish a single, united national organization open to all boys.

World Emblem, Promotion and Protection The Conference recognizes the values to the Movement of using the World Scout Emblem, and directs the World Bureau to act on behalf of the Movement to control protection of the Emblem and to license whenever appropriate its reproduction in any form intended for sale. 3. World Brotherhood Items The Conference encourages Member Associations to build familiarity for the World Scout Emblem and its significance both within Scouting and with the public, directs the World Bureau to continue to study and make available appropriate “world brotherhood items" carrying the emblem, and urges associations to make such items readily available to their members through Scout shops, special events and camps. 4. The World Scout Badge and Flag a) The World Scout Badge shall consist solely of the World Scout Emblem contained within a circle, as defined in paragraph 1. b) The World Scout Flag shall consist solely of the World Scout Emblem with the field rectangular, three units wide by two units high, the Emblem central and 1.25 units wide. c) The use of the World Scout Badge and World Scout Flag by Member Associations, their units and members, is authorized and encouraged whenever appropriate. 5.

  • 1969-09 TrainingHaving met with training as a major theme, and having had the opportunity of studying the presentation on various aspects of the subject, and subsequently discussing them, the Conference: 1. Welcomes the establishment of the reconstituted World Training Sub-Committee, and endorses the action of the World Committee in recognizing the Training Sub-Committee as the authority at world level for the coordination of adult leader training policies and procedures, acting on behalf of the World Conference and World Committee. 2.

Having heard and discussed the report to the Conference by the World Training SubCommittee, unanimously expresses its complete agreement with the philosophy and principles contained in the report and recommendations.
