Each Scout, Patrol, Group and Troop are encouraged to register their local service or peace projects on the Messengers of Peace Platform: scoutmessengers.org.
The Platform is a virtual hub of global Scout activity that creates an inter-connected Network for Scouts worldwide using social media like Facebook and Twitter.
The Platform Learning Zone has tutorials and materials, games, inspirational projects and a “Super Map” that display your personal 'Flag' to show your project.
Go to scoutmessengers.org “Log In” and create a profile. If you want to highlight your personal commitment to action – such as a service or peace project – go to the “Project” section and fill in the details.
Also each Scout is encouraged to join or start local social media groups. All Scouts can collaborate to Create a Better World!
