What peace means to you: Treating other people the way you expect to be treated. Listening to other peoples opinion, compromising, agreeing. Setting aside differences and coming together for whatever is best for all.

Why is it important for you that the Alliance bid is selected: Bidding as an alliance is a great example of best practice of diversity and inclusion in scouting. Each NSO that participate in the alliance ultimately is representing their very own region. So, this is going to be a real world scout jamboree, well represented by every region of the world.
