Youth from America and the world are travelling to Cusco from July 27th to August 5th, 2018 for the 3rd Interamericano Scout Moot.
The III Interamerican Scout Moot’s educative proposal is based on the development of the Inca Empire - "Walking together through America".
Archaeological excavations have discovered that the Cuzco Valley was already inhabited by primitive settlers about three millennia ago . Legend has it that around the twelfth century, Manco Capac and Mama Ocllo were sent to earth by their father God of the Sun and emerged from the waters of Lake Titicaca. Their mission was to found a new kingdom to improve the living conditions of the people. He gave his children a golden rod and told them to push it into the ground wherever they stopped to rest. When they reached a spot where the rod sank completely into the ground with a single push, they should build a sacred city of the sun, to be named Cuzco.
Peru and Cusco is undoubtedly one of the world's top destinations for lovers of nature and biodiversity. Blessed with the richest ocean in the world , vast unexplored Amazon forests and the highest tropical mountain range in the world , the possibilities for the development of biodiversity in its territory are virtually unlimited . With a little more than 10% of all species of plants and animals on earth and a surprisingly diverse range of climates and ecosystems, Peru has become an Ark of modern Noah for nature lovers , who along with students worldwide, visit Peru to acquire new knowledge and learn about the unique varieties . The Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, Manu National Park and Tambopata National Reserve are havens of nature.

This is a symbol of the integration of the people, an expression of collective work, solidarity, cultural exchange, search and discovery. Thus, the program of the will be an expression of an educational proposal based on these principles and a space for personal development, to live by the Scout values and celebrate multiculturalism and diversity, affirm the values of the Scout Movement, commit ourselves to the environment and thus build a better world.
