HeForShe Action Kit
The HeForShe Action Kit is designed to help Scouts across the world become advocates for gender equality and commit to HeForShe by 2020. The Action Kit was developed in five languages in collaboration with UN Women to encourage Scouts across the world to think about gender issues and understand when and how they can act. It is designed for use in all kinds of Scouting activities, from hiking to training sessions, and can be adapted depending on the maturity of the young people involved. The Action Kit has three main elements which are designed to enable Scouts to understand what HeForShe stands for and why they should act, make their own commitment to HeForShe and work out what they can do to mobilise others to take action and spread the word about gender equality. Building on the expertise of UN Women, the toolkit explores issues such as violence, health, identity, education, work and politics suggesting different activities and games that will help Scouts recognise the difficulties associated with gender.
