A Constructive Contribution
Scouts contribute daily towards creating a better world, to find ways to be constructive, and to not leave society only to the care of others, when they themselves can be helpful. Every Scout commits to using their competencies to help others, to share their knowledge, and to improve community life.
In conjunction with the National Association of Young Farmers, the Scout Association of the United Kingdom launched the GAPP (Global Awareness Partnership Project), at the World Scout Jamboree in Chile in 1998.
Canada and South Africa - Observing climate change
Climate changes and their negative impact on the earth motivated Canadian Scouts and the South African Scout Association to develop, test and implement an innovative and highly adaptable programme dealing with environmental problems. Designed with the help of the Canadian International Development Agency and the Delphi group, the programme, which includes the introduction of a new badge, is being run for Cubs, Scouts and Venturers and focuses on energy conservation and adapting to the local effects of climate change.
