About 2000 guides and scouts were together in Vienna, Austria from 11th – 12th December in the Roman Catholic church (Pfarrkirche Neusimmering) to receive the Peace Light from Bethlehem with the motto: Give Hope – Find Peace.
Also Adult scouts from the Central Europe Sub Region received the Peace Light in Vienna for distribution in Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Switzerland.
The guides and scouts brought this light after the ceremony to their countries and to the border of the next country all over Europe and also to USA and Bolivia. Since 1986 the Peace Light comes with an airplane from Bethlehem to Austria and was given to the scouts to spread it over Europe and more countries.
