Are you supporting active global citizenship through your program?
If we help children understand the relationships that connect us to people and places in other parts of the planet, they will learn that their decisions have impact at various locations around the world. With these specific programs, we can contribute to Scouts’ efforts to encourage inclusive, fair, and non-violent coexistence with the rest of the world, including nature, whose resources are limited.
Global Compass is a tool that helps evaluate actions, programmes, and behaviour in scouting and guiding. It offers guidance to units seeking to become more globally responsible.
What kind of activities does your unit do to benefit the local and global community?
What criteria do you take into account when looking for goods, food, property or services?
How do you communicate and interact within your scout unit?
The unit’s council uses the Compass for reflection and to plan certain aspects of the life of the unit.
In your unit’s council, discuss and answer the opening question from the area chosen.
Evaluate your situation for each sub-question within the area.
Get inspiration for change and plan your next steps.
Next time, choose another area or reevaluate the same one.
