The SCENES Network
The SCENES Network is an open network for anyone interested in the development of SCENES. As a minimum, it will include SCENES Centres and volunteers from within WOSM working in environment education, and it will be supported by the World Scout Bureau.
The SCENES Network consists of both a virtual community and encourages physical meetings of representatives of SCENES Centres and other people within the SCENES Network. The SCENES Network functions with the intention of supporting the development of environment education resources for use in SCENES Centres, sharing information on the environment in many places around the world so as to support the worldwide understanding of environmental issues, and to provide support for Scout Centres wishing to improve their environmental education programmes or environmental management practices.
The virtual SCENES Network provides a shared space for discussions, sharing of experiences, files, chat etc. and can be accessed by registering through: www.communityzero.com/scenes
