8 Decent Work and
Economic Growth

Scouts is the Start of Learning Transferable Skills

Imagine a world where everyone has access to jobs and fair pay. Grow by visiting different workplaces in your community or run an event with only fair trade products.

Money is important, we use money to buy food when we get hungry and clothes to keep us warm. Yet, not everyone has access to money. Imagine a world where everyone has a job that they enjoy and makes enough money to afford the necessities like food, clothing and a home. 


Activities for Working Hard

  • Who in your community can help you learn more about different types of work? 
  • What types of jobs do people have around the world?
