Young People and Communities
Young people are at the heart of Scouting. With over 57 million members worldwide, Scouting is set to become the world’s largest educational youth movement, empowering young people to become active citizens and leaders.
Scouting welcomes young people of all backgrounds, belief, ethnicities, genders and abilities. We are an inclusive, values-based Movement that celebrates our diversity.
In a world facing climate crises and alarming rates of wildlife and nature loss, Scouts are leaders in sustainable advocacy, lifestyle, and climate action and helping restore our planet.
Humanitarian efforts and values are pivotal to Scouting, which is why Scouts are often among the first to respond in times of crisis.
Scouting promotes peace and mutual understanding through the principles of dialogue.
