Scouts of the World Award
The Scouts of the World Award was introduced in 2004 to challenge all young people aged 15-26 to think about the global issues that the face and act on them in the community. Projects are developed in one of the three fields of action: Development, Peace and the Environment at the Award has two phases that both need to be completed.
The Scouts of the World Award is available for Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts to complete.
