SCOUTS OF THE WORLDThe Scouts of the World Award is an initiative to help National Scout Organisations revitalise the programme of Senior Sections (15-26 age range) by giving young people more opportunities to face the challenges of the future as identified by the Millennium Declaration unanimously adopted by the 189 member countries of the United Nations in 2000:
Peace, security and disarmament; Development and the eradication of poverty; The protection of our common environment.
It is proposed to young people from 15 to 26 years old, Scouts (Senior-Scouts and Rover sections) or non-Scouts, willing to contribute to make the world a better place. It should help to improve the programme of the senior sections (over 15). This is why National Scout Organisations are invited to integrate the Scouts of the World Award within the programme of their Senior-Scout or Rover sections.
