For over 110 years, the World Scout Movement has contributed to the education of young people through experiential learning, non-formal learning methods, commitment to oneself and others, and good works. In 2020 we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the scout movement activities in Vilkaviskis, which is a great opportunity together with other young people to initiate the gathering of Vilkaviskis scout history, to discuss the culture, historical events, citizenship, youth activities, democracy, rights and responsibilities, other aspects, and learning from each other about active citizenship. With this project we aim to celebrate the 100 years anniversary of scouting in Vilkaviškis and to make sure that everyone in our towns knows about scouting. We aim to publish a book on Vilkaviskis scouts about all 100 years of scouting (interwar, exile and restoration of scouting in free Lithuania). Also we wish to create an exhibition on roll-up stands which we would like to share with at least 5 different places in our region. In May 2020 we wish to gather all Vilkaviskis scouts from different timelines and scout friends who helped in our activity and have a nice party in which we would share our experience, memories, skills etc. Also to make a video of this celebration. In October 2020 we wish to organize final conference dedicated to Vilkaviskis scouting in which we would gather Vilkaviskis region teachers, students, parents, scouts from all Lithuania to discuss about volunteering service, citizenship education, democratic values, personal scouting experience and its benefits, etc. and encourage young people. Also it is very important to educate young people so we want to organize several workshops for current Vilkaviskis scouts. We believe that this project would help people know much more about scouting and its impact on people in general.
