Since Scouting's inception, the protection and appreciation of our natural areas has been at the forefront of our program. Today, in our Scout Law, we ask all members to care for others and the environment and use resources wisely. We want Scouts to enjoy everything this amazing planet has to offer, and we are determined not to destroy it in the process.
There are many simple activities that can inspire Scouts to care for the environment - developing their environmental knowledge, pro-environmental behaviour, and affinity for the natural environment. Scouts can also engage in camps and community activities that have environmental themes or aspects.
State Environment Council
The State Environment Council develops activities and resources to assist Leaders to deliver environmental programs. Our Scout Environment Charter encourages Scouts to ‘Think Globally and Act Locally’, a sentiment that can apply to many of your Group’s programs. We’re also committed to minimal impact practices across the organisation.
Join the State Environment Council today! Scouts, Venturers, Rovers and Leaders are welcome to email the State Commissioner - Environment to join an engaged team to work on Environment programs and making Scouts Victoria a more sustainable organisation.
