The European Scouts Symposium is being held in Dublin this weekend.
Scouting Ireland along with leaders from all around the world will gather to discuss a range of issues such as bullying, self esteem, conflict resolution and nutrition.
CEO of the group John Lawlor explained some of the topics that will top today's agenda.
"Well, some of the big issues are about youth empowerment, about social inclusion, about human rights," he said.
"These are some of the key themes that have shot out today."
