"To contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law, to help build a better world where people are self fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society."
As opposed to the old:
"To contribute to the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities through the application of our Principles and Practices."
For an understanding of the Principles and Practices, see Liam Morland's article at: ScoutDocs
The WOSM has put out a document on Understanding the new Mission Statement
(This new Mission Statement does put more emphasis on the Promise and Law, which in itself is good, unless the aim is to change the Promise and Law in the near future.)
