Scouts for SDGs in the Community

Scouts for SDGs in the Community outlines the updated Better World Framework as a portfolio of world initiatives categorized in four thematic areas of education. The thematic areas focus on global issues and trends affecting young people and diverse communities for the next decade. The educational initiatives and their challenges inspire young people to participate in their local communities and strengthen their active citizenship while collaborating with different partner organizations.

Representing the Scout Movement

As an external representative, a spokesperson, a volunteer, or a professional working at national or international levels of Scouting, we could be called upon to represent the Movement in an article, interview, or speech at any time. This resource will provide us with some ideas and key mesages on how to make our task a little easier. 

When in scarf or uniform, we reflect Scouting's brand and have a duty to protect and strengthen the reputation and image of Scouting in speech, action, and visual representation. 

Capacity Building in Humanitarian Action for National Scout Organizations

This document is prepared in an effort by WOSM to support National Scout Organizations (NSOs) in their response to emergencies and disasters. Instead of focusing entirely on the response, the full spectrum of the ‘disaster lifecycle’ is of importance. One of the steps WOSM has taken is to provide toolkits and materials that NSOs can use to develop their understanding of the subject and reference to build capacity. These materials can be used as:

• General reference materials on disaster preparedness and response

• Training and workshop modules and trainer’s guides

Scouting in Humanitarian Settings - Action Kit

All young people should have access to formal and non-formal education and part of Scouting's mission is to contribute to the development of young people.

As a complement of the Scouting in Humanitarian Settings Manual, WOSM has developed a simple and engaging Action Kit that can be used to introduce Scouting to young people in Humanitarian Settings. These are fun and educational activities that can be adapted to different contexts and remain culturally sensitive.

Scouting in Humanitarian Settings - Manual

As the mission of Scouting is to contribute to the development of young people, National Scout Organisations (NSOs) that choose to engage in Humanitarian Action should adapt the Scout programme to the particular needs of young people in humanitarian settings; further, they should work with other partners pursuing non-formal or formal educational objectives in those settings. The programme should be flexible enough to be implemented under different contexts.

For more than a century, Scouting has kept environmental protection and sustainability at its verycore; living in harmony with nature is an integral part of the Scout Method. In a world facing more environmental crises than ever before, this report comes as a timely response to questions about Scouting’s environmental impact.

WOSM Guidelines for Organising Sustainable Events

Scouts around the world regularly take part in events on a local, national, regional, and world scale. These events offer opportunities for learning, creating long-lasting friendships, and, in the case of international events, discovering new cultures and traditions.

Events, regardless of their size, have a social, economic, and environmental impact on the community in which the event takes place. A sustainable event takes these elements into account and aims at minimising the negative impact, while also working towards increasing the positive one.
