Activities and programme ideas for scouts
WWF has been announced as one of the Scouts A Million Hands partners. We’ll provide ready-made activities and programme ideas centred on six national themes, chosen by the young people themselves. WWF will be working with Scouts to support young people who want to get involved in the Protecting Our Environment theme.
Our world is under threat like never before and we’re fighting to protect it while there’s still time restoring habitats, bringing species back from the brink and tackling the root causes behind nature’s decline such as climate change, the food system, habitat loss and the way we live our lives. 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.
