The Better World Framework is a portfolio of world initiatives addressing four thematic areas of education focusing on global issues and trends affecting young people and diverse communities in the next 10 years. Each initiative contains challenges for young people that inspire them to participate in their local communities and become active citizens. The thematic areas of education are as follows:
• Environment and Sustainability
• Peace and Community Engagement
• Health and Wellbeing
• Skills for Life
There is one Better World initiative for each thematic area of education. Each initiative offers a set of defined paths and learning objectives relevant to its theme. These learning objectives are the basis for integrating the initiatives and its challenges into your Youth Programme. Each initiative’s learning objectives align with the principles of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), the World Scout Youth Programme Policy, and the Essential Characteristics of Scouting.
