Making a difference every day
Scouts are contributing to the SDGs and building a better, more peaceful world. They are volunteering, peacebuilding, and creating innovative solutions to help those who need them most, and inspiring others to take action.
Learning for a better future
Young people are using skills and knowledge gained in Scouting to transform their communities. Through our innovative educational initiatives, such as Earth Tribe and Messengers of Peace, Scouts are championing climate action, gender equality, human rights and other key issues.
“The power of Scouting is that it equips and empowers young people with the necessary life skills and leadership abilities to play an active role in society. By engaging in acts of community service, Scouts are working to promote peace, tackle plastics pollution, encourage access to clean water and sanitation, and drive towards renewable energy.”
