With over 183 nationalities present, Brussels is the most international city in Europe. Many communities have a well established cultural life, around schools, cultural houses, churches, youth activities etc.

Some, like us, enjoy the interesting nature of Belgium, and are combining cultural life, youth engagement and nature, through national scout movements.

As you might have seen in a Brussels park on a sunny weekend, scouting is a popular activity in Belgium.

On this site you can learn more about our movements, both what we do individually and what we plan to do of common activities, and how to contact us, should you be interested of experiencing more.
