Better World Framework


Scouts contribute every day to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through community service. This is possible through exciting opportunities that National Scout Organizations offer young people through their Youth Programmes where they can learn about the needs of local communities and take steps to make long-lasting change in the lives of others.

In this service area, you will find a variety of national, regional and world initiatives that will help your National Scout Organization integrate education for sustainable development into their Youth Programme. We can help your National Scout Organization align its projects, initiatives, and recognition badges with education for sustainable development or scale it up as a World Initiative for other National Scout Organizations to learn from.

Service testimonial:

Our consultant knew the program well and came up with a great concept quickly. Some knowledge about the challenges of a federation, such as ours was missing. We hoped to get a clearer picture, which is what we got. … Some communication has started within the scope of implementation and discussions that we never had before on a federation level”

- Marcus Klapdor on Implementing the Earth Tribe Initiative in Germany
