All members are equally committed to the way in which Scouting seeks to help young people to develop - through Scouting’s unique method of progressive self-education. The Scout Method is a comprehensive educational framework composed of elements which work together as a system to provide young people with a rich and active learning environment. It is based on how young people naturally develop, taking into account their evolving characteristics, needs and interests at different stages of development. Together, Scouting’s purpose, principles and method form the essence of Scouting’s educational system, i.e. they are the foundation on which Scouting is  based all over the world. In order for the Movement to achieve its educational goals, the Movement as a whole must provide the global conditions for this to happen.
