the Challenges

Look for a new challenge
every Monday!

Around the World Crest

Over the next eight-weeks, Sections will visit eight different countries, develop new skills through fun challenges and support their communities and the planet by leading exciting Scouts for Sustainability activities.

With the help of a symbolic transporting compass, imagine that your Scout Group can ping around the globe to different destinations quickly. In each country you’ll be faced with a challenge or a fun activity to champion as a Section. Once completed, your Section can collect a crest for that week and eventually curate the full composite crest!

Each week, Scouts will acquire a “GADGET” in pursuing their adventures; these items will be used in the activity for Week 8: Contraption Action, so make sure that you hold on to your GADGETS!

Thanks to the global movement that connects Scouts Canada to World Scouting, youth will enjoy weekly featured videos from each of the eight participating National Scout Organizations (NSO).

Get ready for an adventure-filled, fun eight weeks that will connect youth with Scouts from around the world, and will also help Sections leave a lasting and positive impact through our Scouts for Sustainability developmental outcomes.

 
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a global plan for a better world and a brighter future. Created by the United Nations in 2015, SDGs encourage positive change across the world in three main areas—eliminating poverty, reducing inequalities and fighting climate change. This video, We the People for the Global Goals, is a fun way to get the conversation started!

So, what is Scouts for Sustainability?

Scouts for Sustainability works to integrate the 17 Sustainable Development Goals into Scouts Canada’s program—The Canadian Path. Essentially, Scouts for Sustainability connects the dots between the SDGs and the fun adventures that Scouts already do, demonstrating links between exciting Canadian Path activities and the learning outcomes that prioritize the environment and sustainability, lending a helping hand in the community, and thinking industriously. The Scouts for Sustainability program also introduces plenty of new ideas so that youth and Scouting Sections can take their SDG journey even further!

Youth Sustainability Panel

Amplifying young voices to engage and inspire the next generation, the Youth Sustainability Panel hosted by Scouts Canada brings together teenage sustainability leaders to amplify young voices. 

Join panelists Stella Bowles, Naila Moloo and Vishal Vijay in exploring youth leadership and sustainable action in Canada.

Register for this FREE event, taking place on October 24 at 2:00pm ET.
