World Scout Environment Program (WSEP)
The World Scout Environment Program is a collection of tools to support environmental education in Scouting around the world.
The World Scout Environment Badge aims to create an awareness of personal responsibility for the environment. The badge has two sections: Explore and Reflect, and Take Action. There are three age levels: under 11 years, 11-15 years and over 15 years.
To be eligible for a Landcare Badge, Scouts can take part in any three nationally accredited environment events either supported or run by Landcare Australia. These include Landcare Week, Planet Ark’s Tree Day, Keep Australia Beautiful and Clean Up Australia.
Alternatively, many Scouts are already members of a Landcare group. All these members need to do is provide evidence of their regular volunteer work.
Whichever option you choose, you need a total of 10 hours service within a 12 month period.
