While Scouting youth are already known for leading environmental and social causes to benefit the world around them, Scouts Canada’s new Scouts for Sustainability program is taking our impact to the next level by aligning our existing Canadian Path program with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The SDGs tie in well with The Canadian Path’s six program areas, youth development goals (SPICES), and Plan-Do-Review. The Scouts for Sustainability program will empower youth to make a difference by encourging adventures with an impact!
There are 54 million Scouts making the world’s largest coordinated youth contribution to the SDGs. Young people around the world are transforming their communities by taking action for peace and sustainability.

Its activities are guided by the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other UNESCO priorities.
