One of the chief goals of the centre is to provide scouts in Rustavi with facilities for their indoor and outdoor activities as well as a permanent office to deal with all administrative matters of the organization. The buildings are designed for this purpose. The centre is also available to other youth groups in Georgia, e.g. from the capital Tbilisi, and as a location for special events (training courses, seminars, planning weekends, etc.) In addition, the International Scout Centre Rustavi generates income by renting its facilities to third parties: The centre can be used by school and university groups as well as non-governmental organizations looking for a venue for residential study weeks and meeting. The centre offers overnight accommodations for tourists, groups and individuals.

Training course- "In Media we Trust?"

From 20th to 29th October, the International Scout Centre Rustavi hosts an international training course “In Media We Trust?” organised by Youth Association DRONI from Georgia and Radio F.R.E.I. from Germany. During nine days, twenty-one youth workers and young people from Georgia, Germany, Armenia, Denmark, Czech republic and Montenegro learn about media literacy, journalistic ethics and how can young people nowadays protect themselves from disinformation and fake news. The group spent three days attending meetings with different media organisations, such as Georgian Charter for Journalistic Ethics, Coda Stories, OC Media, Rustavi 2, Radio Free Europe or Media Development Foundation. Based on their experience and analysis of the Georgian media environment, multiple simulation games in ISCR and discussions, they tried to formulate the ways, how media literacy can be trained in their countries.
