Creating a Better World
Creating a Better World is something all Scouts of any age want, and can, do. There is a massive variety of interests for a Scout to explore in this area. Some include;
- Waste reduction
- First Aid
- Animal Rescue
- Food Relief
- Project to aid people with a disability
- Social Justice
- Disaster Relief and Aid
- Country Fire Service
- Surf Life Saving
- Other Volunteer Programs (e.g. Salvation Army, Fred’s Van, Shoe Box of Love etc.)
- Fundraising for a cause
And any other volunteering or charity opportunities that have a cause.
A Scout may choose to go to a Not-for-Profit Organisation in their local community. They are often majority volunteers and are passionate people to learn from.
Another great way to inspire yourself is to look at the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) that are relevant to Creating a Better World. There are two links https://scouts.com.au/blog/2019/05/29/scouts4sdgs/ and https://www.scout.org/better-world-framework
Messengers of Peace also comes under the Creating a Better World Area https://www.scout.org/messengersofpeace you can upload your completed projects to this Global site too.
Completing a Creating a Better World project is one big step in becoming an active citizen and giving to your community while learning about your interests.
