- Think about the kind of log you will compose before planning your good turns. (It’s hard to make a photographic or video log after the fact!)
- What skills do you have that could be used for good turns?
- What gear do you need for your good turns?
- What details will you include? How will you measure your good turn?
- Compose your log. This can be a collaborative or an independent activity—but ask for help if you need it. You’ll probably find that everyone has more fun contributing to the log if your Patrol works together
- Your log can take any number of forms: take selfies while doing good turns, write about what you’ve done, make a cool video… You could even write songs or draw pictures. The only limit is your imagination!
- What do you know now that you did not know before?
- How did your project perform against the measures you set?
- How did the team get along?
- What would you do differently in the future?
Remember to submit your activities on our Scouts for Sustainability Take Action Map
Keep it Simple
- Rather than logging your good turns as a group, keep a personal journal of the good turns that you have done for others. At the end of the Scouting year, take a look at the good turns you’ve done throughout the year. How does it feel to have done so many good turns?
Take it Further
- Create a good turn plan! Include good turns in your cycle or yearly planning. Include a good turn per month or cycle – what kind of good turns will your Section do throughout the year?
