World Scout Environment Badge

World Scout Environment Badge

The World Scout Environment Badge seeks to create an awareness of personal responsibility for the environment. The badge encourages Scouts to connect with nature, think about how we interact with the environment and take action to protect it. The environment is a global subject, and the badge focuses on learning about local and global issues and how taking local action can help both of these.
