Since 1977, the King has been the honorary president of the World Scout Foundation (WSF).⠀⠀
This week, the King visited Seoul in South Korea where he attended several meetings organized by the WSF. During the visit, the King also had the opportunity to participate in scout activities together with approximately 400 South Korean scouts.
On April 4-6, the King was in the Scots meeting in Seoul, South Korea, along with the Baden-Powell Fellowship. The meetings were organized by the World Scout Foundation (WSF).
During the visit to South Korea, the King participated in several meetings with the World Scout Foundation. At one of the meetings, young scouts from different countries in the world participated and told about some of the projects that they implemented.
During Saturday night, a gala dinner was organized with the Baden-Powell Fellowship where the King spoke:
"I have served in the World Scout Foundation for 42 years - quite a long time. Still, I have never heard of Scouts face great challenges with courage, compassion and determination. These young people are an inspiration - for all of us!"
The visit to South Korea ended with the King participating in scouting activities in Seoul.
