WOSM Code of Conduct for Elections
The leadership of WOSM aspires to the highest ethical standards. In seeking to serve in the highest offices of the leadership of WOSM, we wish the candidates to be good examples of the values of the Scout Promise and Law. This Code of Conduct is intended to assist candidates and their supporters to proactively avoid any actions that might be contrary to the values of WOSM.
The WOSM Code of Conduct for Elections (Code) is based on the Scout values contained in the Scout Promise and Law. As such, the Code acts as guidelines on how candidates and their supporters are expected to behave when contesting elections for roles in the WOSM Volunteer Structure. We want to promote an environment where our behaviour is guided by Scouting values and everyone feels safe and respected. This Code will help us prevent unwanted behaviours and also allow us to act to correct them if they occur. As Scouts, we want to build a better world where people are self-fulfilled and play a constructive role in society. Our actions as volunteers and employees in our everyday life should promote our Scouting values and our mission. This document is to help clarify, in concrete terms, what is expected of each member of the WOSM in such elections.
