A strong delegation of the Slovene National Scouts Organisation recently attended the 39th World Scouts Congress, which took place in Curitiba, Brazil in January 2011, with a very special purpose. After 14 months of preparations, the bid to host the next congress in 2014 in Slovenia and Ljubljana was formally presented. Two countries entered the final selection: the Slovenian team faced a very strong competition from Italy, which proposed Florence and Rimini as destinations for the event. The votes of the national delegations were counted at the closing ceremony, and Slovenia won the bid with a substantial majority of votes.
The Congress will take place in Ljubljana, while the Youth Forum will run in the green environment of the Rogla Plateau.
