Activities and programme ideas for scouts

Young people are key stakeholders in building a brighter, more sustainable future. If they understand our planet, they can change the world. This partnership will help scouts to re-connect with nature, develop environmental literacy and be part of youth led action for our world.

Participating in A Million Hands is one-way Scouts can achieve their Community Impact Staged Activity Badge, by taking practical action in the service of others, to create positive social change.

Promise to the Planet

Join us and take action for a brighter future

From June to November this year, 57 million Scouts from across the world will take a stand and work towards a better world by taking action to reduce climate change.  They’ll get hands-on to make a difference wherever they live, use their voices to inspire decision makers, and record their actions for the planet.

#PromiseToThePlanet covers four key areas: recover, recycle, reduce and rethink, with a suggested ‘hands-on’ and ‘use your voice’ action for each area, but it’s up to you what you do to fight climate change.

Protecting our environment

You can download a whole host of fun WWF activities and games to support young people who want to get involved and take action to improve biodiversity and restore nature in their local communities, which includes the following examples.
