Patrimonito Guidelines

Scouts worldwide are committed to their promise to fulfil their duty to create a better world, as the founder of the Scout Movement, Baden-Powell said in his last message in 1941, ‘Leave this world a little better than you found it’. Creating a better world is not only a slogan and vision for Scouts, but also a way of life and a value they live. Throughout the history of humankind, human beings have identified themselves with their culture and heritage, which give them a sense of pride. To a certain extent, our cultural heritage mirrors our national unity. Therefore, the preservation of heritage properties is an important undertaking, as it helps in understanding the story of a race. Heritage includes both the tangibles (monument, landmarks, places, etc.) and the intangibles (stories, dances, food, etc.). The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) have acknowledged the importance of World Heritage and the need to work together to protect it.
