Scouts of the World Award

Introduction

The Scouts of the World Award challenges all young people, Scouts and non-Scouts, to think about global issues and act upon them in their local community. It is the only award for young people provided by World Scouting. As part of the learning experience, you can gain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to help solve global issues at local level. The award requires a commitment from you to make your community a better place. On completion, you will be part of a network that provides inspiration to others to take action.
