Everyday actions make a difference! Young people around the world are creating innovative solutions to tackle the most pressing challenges facing our planet today!
Scouting’s action-oriented approach to education is uniquely designed to equip young people with the competencies to become active global citizens and contribute to peace and sustainable development.
Over the years Scouting has made any extraordinary contribution to improve the sustainability of our planet, promote peace, and tackle inequality.
Already Scouts have contributed more than two billion hours towards sustainable development through World Scouting’s flagship initiatives.
Now, as a global Movement, we are taking that commitment one step further with Scouts for SDGs – an unprecedented mobilization is engaging 54 million Scouts to make the world’s largest coordinated youth contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Along the way we plan to deliver a total of 4 billion hours of community service towards the SDGs.
Scouts for SDGs is more than just a campaign or promise, it’s a systematic effort to leverage Scouting’s Youth Program and initiatives under the Better World Framework, including Messengers of Peace, to raise awareness and take action for the SDGs.
Globally there are 16,431, 545 Community Service Projects and Actions registered.
That is 2,538,429,897 hours logged. That is over half way to our 4 billion hours committed globally.
For Australia we have over 660 Community Service Projects and Action and 247,867,450 hours logged with projects and actions across all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
