How do you engage scouts and guides with global issues, and motivate them to explore their relationship with and responsibilities towards others?
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.

Create an interactive game about the diversity of the World’s population from the statistics. You can connect this to human rights.
Use legends and stories with female heroines who make their own choices and don’t rely on men eg.: movies made by Haia Miazakiho – princess Mononoke, Naušika, Čihiro; Gerda from Snow Queen by H. CH. Anderson, Giny from Harry Potter, Momo by Michael Ende, legend about Mulan etc.
Choose a person in a wheelchair or a blind person as the the guide through the story of long-time game.
Where it fits the topic of a game, ask for help with guiding a game someone (native speaker from other country) who doesn’t speak the same language as members of the scout/guide group. They experience the challenges to communicate with him/her by other language.
