Change Inspired by Iceland

By: Anwar Shakoor

Cold! Yes it was! coming from the Caribbean, seven participants represented Trinidad and Tobago in the largest moot ever which took place in Iceland.

The first three out of nine days of camping were split into 12 villages around the island, where each experience was amazing. The sceneries are spectacular wherever you go in the country. The camp took place at Ulfjotsvatn for the next six days, bringing 5000 scouts together from 106 counties around the world.

We learnt different cultures. We hiked together, we ate together, we sang together, bringing us all closer. Some of the other activities included scout craft, youth forums, cooking and every night was a “party.”

If you ask me about Iceland, it was like a story book with the most beautiful, unreal places I can imagine. Everyone is friendly. The water is always cold but pure and there is scenery like no other in every direction. Iceland, also known as the land of fire and ice will forever live on in our scouting hearts.
