A VISION

Creating a better world

GLOBAL ADVOCACY

TAKING ACTION AT LOCAL LEVEL

Scouting has a universal responsibility worldwide but has an advantage in that it is both global and local. The famous slogan “Think globally, act locally� easily applies to the Scout Movement. World Scouting is active in many areas of global importance, including:

As the NGO community takes action to support the recognition of a global cause, the entire Scout Movement could take action on a specific day to a specific cause, thus affirming its unity, global nature, ability to take action locally, and the universal nature of its values. Some of the important issues that Scouting deals with at a local level are:

- Understanding the effects of globalisation

- The fight against social exclusion

- Agriculture and food production

- Sustainable development

- Equal opportunities for men and women

- Emergency and humanitarian aid

- Cultural diversity

- Youth involvement and youth citizenship

- The rights of children and young people

- Youth policies

- Youth employability

- The promotion of non-formal education

- Responsible governance

- The promotion of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals

- The fight against racism

- Protection of the environment

- Clean drinking water

A MISSION

Educating young people to play a constructive role in society

- Literacy - Renewable energies - Street children - The acquisition of life skills - Professional training - Sanitation - Integration of people with disabilities - Fighting against child labour - Support for migrants and indigenous communities - Prevention and fight against AIDS
