Given the possible eruption of Mount Agung, the situation was stable at the time the ISGF World Conference took place. Only a few participants cancelled their participation. Volcanic eruptions could result in ash clouds that could severely disrupt air travel, leading to closures of affected airports.

On Monday, 9 October 2017 the opening ceremony of the 28th ISGF World Conference took place in Inna Grand Bali Beach hotel in Sanur, Bali. Two hundred and eighty participants (280) from forty-seven (47) countries were present.

On Tuesday, 10 October 2017 the Triennial Report followed showcasing the work done by World Committee 2014 – 2017. The workshops to come to an Action Plan for 2017 – 2020 took place. The ISGF World Committee organized a Forum on Intercultural Dialogue in order to define a role of National Scout and Guide Fellowships in promoting dialogue within and between cultures, ethnics and religions. During this day Zambia, associate member since 2011, became full member and four new National Scout and Guide Fellowships obtained ISGF full membership: Nepal, Qatar, Turkey and United Arab Emirates.

On Wednesday, 11 October 2017 the World Conference elected for three new World Committee members: Mario BERTAGNOLIO, Zalillah MOHD TAIB and Elin RICHARDS.

On Thursday, 12 October 2017, it was the excursion day.

On Friday, 13 October 2017 Spain, the only candidate for the next World Conference, was chosen as the next host of the 29th ISGF World Conference which will take place in 2020 in Madrid. Ghana, the other candidate, withdrew his candidacy. There was also the final session of the workshop dedicated to conclusions for the formulation of recommendations and approval of the Bali ISGF declaration.

A full report and a photo gallery will follow soon.
