Scouting's Sunrise at Local Level
Excellent communications and support are required in order for all Scouts to be involved in Scouting’s Sunrise. National Scout Organizations are therefore asked to give their full support to local leaders and the organisation of local celebrations.
The way in which this day is celebrated will no doubt vary widely from community to community. Scouts may wish to hold their celebrations in their normal meeting place, or to use a prominent building or open space in their locality. They may wish to demonstrate Scouting activities and invite the public to join in, or exhibit their projects and invite the public to discover what they do. Activities could include outdoor adventures, music, drama, cooking, interactive displays. Whatever the format, they should be participatory and interesting. The Join-in-Centenary activity pack developed by the World Scout Bureau provides activities for participation in Scouting's Sunrise and ideas to develop further.
This is a day to share the Gifts for Peace projects with the local community. Scouts at local level should be encouraged to present their Gifts for Peace to their communities and authorities.
Scouts should feel part of a unique world movement and can link up with others through all possible networks, such as amateur radio, internet websites, via web-cams, tuning in to the World Scout Jamboree radio and linking up with their friends in Scouting across the world.
If Scouts are traveling on or around 1 August 2007, they could be encouraged to contact other Scout groups and join in celebrations in other parts of their country, or even abroad!
