Global scouting for young people – without leaving the country

Looking for ideas for international, environmental and global activities or games?

  • start with your young people and their families – some of them might welcome the chance to help you add an international flavour to your programme through culture, food, games, songs, language and traditions
  • take a look through The Scouts’ Running your section’s resources.
  • If your Section uses On-Line Scout Manager did you realise there are lots of activities, games and plans on there too? Just search for the one you like and add it straight into your term programme, badge requirements and all
  • if you use Facebook join your District group, join the Cambridgeshire Scouts group or search for groups such as such as 1st Facebook Beavers / Cubs / Scouts / Explorers

Please don’t forget if you have a great global activity or event you have run why not add it to one or more of those sites / pages / groups so that others can use your experiences to expand their programme too!

International jamborees for Scouts and Explorer Scouts take place across the UK every year. They provide an ideal way to link up with others from around the world, and can often lead to “exchanges” between two contingents from different countries. Such events also give a great taster of the worldwide nature of scouting, and a greater understanding of the world we live in.

Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) and Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI) events provide a fantastic and easy way to link up with scouts from other countries, through media and technology

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
