posted on August 11, 2009 05:16:35 am

The world is being threatened by climate change and Scouts have the opportunity to have their actions recognised and their voices heard amongst the world's leaders on this important issue. In December 2009, The United Nations will hold a Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark where world leaders will decide what future we would like to see for our shared planet. In light of the current international focus on climate change and environmental awareness, the World Organization of the Scout Movement reaffirms its commitment to the environment and tackling climate change by urging Scouts around the world to demonstrate their leadership capabilities and take action.

Several co-operative partnerships have been established between WOSM and other organisations that have committed themselves to tackling the climate change challenge. Scouts have many opportunities to show their concern for the environment and to share what action they are taking on the climate change challenge, which can be seen by the local community and international community. We urge Scouts worldwide to engage in the following campaigns, visit the websites and participate in vocalising our pledge in our mission of “Creating a Better World”.

Danish Scouts earn World Scout Environment Badges
posted on July 27, 2009 03:32:24 am

The Hops Clan from Sakskøbing had hardly eaten the energy-friendly baked potato, before they raced to the Climate Tent. Here they found that commitment is rewarded. They were the first to receive five stamps needed for the World Scout Environment Badge, and thus the proud owners of the world's first environmental badge for Scouts. Jens Peter, Morten, Ellen, Patrick, Louise and Daniel solved the tasks together and had set a target to become the first to receive the badge. They immediately threw themselves into three climate activities in the afternoon where they learned about heating the water primitively, create wind and build a so-called Sudan stove. Friday they learned about the secrets of the rain forest and environmental friendly potato baking. This is all part of the programme available to 20,000 Scouts at the 'Blue Summer' or Blå Sommer Jamboree in Denmark.
