Sustainable Development Goals and Scouts

Have you heard about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals? There are 17 different ones that have been established and Scouting is on board to ‘Create a better world’ to support these.

Find out more at https://scouts.com.au/blog/2019/05/29/scouts4sdgs/

Relying on unclean energy to fuel our lives speeds up climate change and impacts people’s health. Check out the Scouts Australia activity card and information about SDG13 – Climate Action to find out more.

For those on our new Program, why not turn this into a Special Interest Area project!
