Helping Your Local Environment

We each have a role in making our local communities the best possible place. Here is your chance to give, make and help contribute to your local environment!

  • What do you need to bring for your trip? 
  • Where are you going to go? 
  • What is the purpose of your trip? What are your goals? 
  • How will your trip benefit the community? 
  • When are you going to go on your trip? 


  • Using the template provided, create your own plan for activities you can do in your local communities.  
  • In these plans, you will take your knowledge about climate change and come up with an action a group of youth can do to help your local environment.  
  • This could be creating a recycling campaign, a litter collection walk, a shore clean-up, or anything you can think of. 


  • What challenges did you run into while creating your plans? 
  • Who should you be connecting with before doing your plan? 
  • What impact are you hoping this plan has on the community? 
  • How does it feel knowing you are doing good for the local community? 
  • Remember to submit your activities on our Scouts for Sustainability Take Action Map

Keep it Simple

  • Work as a group to come up with a plan that everyone will work on together for a project that can be done in the community. 

Take it Further

  • Create a multi-event series to give back to their community. This gives you the chance to create multiple mini projects, happening over time.  
  • Take your projects further by becoming "Environmental Event Planners". Create invitations, a schedule for the event, and plan things like decorations and music for the event!
