40 leaders from our 40 different Scout Groups joined together via a video-call, which was streamed live on Facebook. During this call, they renewed virtually their Scout Promise and encouraged every member to do the same from home.
In a statement published on Sunday the Scout Association of Malta said that on this day, in normal circumstances, thousands of scout members would have marched around the streets of Valletta, participating in the Annual Parade.
Due to the coronavirus situation, this was not possible but they came up with the idea of the first-ever national virtual event.
The aim of this event was to showcase that Scouting is still active worldwide.
The Scout Association of Malta said that all groups are still very active with online meetings and voluntarily helping out in the community.
