Who took part... The UK Contingent 174 young adults, aged 18 to International Service Team, aged Contingent Management Team The biggest UK Contingent to a Moot (we think!)
Who took part... Other contingents Over 80 different countries were represented Contingent sizes ranged from 1 (Romania, Kenya) to about a million (Mexicans)! Over 2,000 young adults took part IST and support staff added another 500+
What we did... UK Contingent preparations First briefing weekend in October Gilwell Park Second briefing weekend in April Bradley Wood Active Facebook group Newsletters and official communications

What we did... The Moot itself Opening ceremonies in Ottawa and then at Awacamenj Mino Three days of activities on and around the camp-site Two days on urban experience, linked with Shelterbox, etc Cultural day for all on site, including First Nations ceremony Closing ceremony on site, all night party option!
What we did... UK Contingent post-event Toronto & Niagra Falls Banff & The Rockies White water rafting Free time / independent travel
How it went... The Practicalities Some travel glitches – lost bags, missed flights, etc! Some practical challenges on site – food distribution A range of medical issues – we now love the NHS! Full-on, but hugely rewarding!
How it went... The Experience Working with international patrols A great inter-cultural day (not just cos we won the Moot Ashes) Enjoying the Canadian wilderness First Nations ceremonies, demonstrations and chats
How it went... The Feedback 89% of the contingent said the Moot gave them the chance to experience other cultures 70% said they’d developed personally during the Moot 93% would recommend Iceland 2017…
