Building Bridges - Guide for Dialogue Ambassadors
What can be found in this document?
In this document, we explore the many roots and manifestations of dialogue, always with the aim of instilling an attitude of peace and of respect towards others in the hearts of all young people. This document provides guidance to NSOs and NSAs on how to instil dialogue in our hearts and minds as a value, rather than just a skill. It builds a foundation for dialogue in our Movement and strengthens the Scouting value system. Through this document, we offer a clear path to any young person wanting to become what we call, a dialogical Scout. This is one of the ways to create a better world, and to achieve global peace.
