Do you acquire things with consideration for other people and the environment?
Besides buying, there are other ways of getting things and food. And things are made and food is grown under different conditions. Via consumer choice, we can reinforce what we think is right with regard to the environment and the working conditions of the people who grow food or produce things for us.
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?
How do you engage scouts and guides with global issues, and motivate them to explore their relationship with and responsibilities towards others?
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.
