Zimbabwe recently won a bid to host the 2018 Africa Scout Day commemorations which is a day set aside by AU in recognition of contributions of scouting in Africa. Winning the bid to host the event means that Zimbabwe will be the scouting capital for 2018. Not Only will Zimbabwe host the Africa Scout Day Celebrations but will also be hosting Africa Youth Forum from the 4th to the 6th of September 2018 and a Youth Conference from 7 to 10 September.
