This is a ready-to-go program for scouts in all sections while scouting from home. There are a wide range of activities for you to choose from, and each one is set out with easy, clear instructions in a Plan, Do, Review format. They are based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and are suitable for all sections to use while scouting from home!
The full list of activities can be found on our Activity Sheets Page . These sheets take only between 30 mins to 1 hour. At your online meeting, set up the activity with the scouts, who then get on with it in their own time at home. At the next meeting discuss how they got on, following the pointers in the activity sheet. Each activity is easily adapted to all sections.
Compete a minimum of 8 activity sheets spreading across all 5 Pillars below to earn your Sustainable Scouting from Home badge. You must complete all 8 sheets before 1st June 2021. You may also use these resources for Special Interest and Better World badges too!
These 5 Pillars cover the areas of People, Planet, Peace, Prosperity and Partnerships- see here for more information on the SDGs.
There are lots of activities which use creativity and imagination. Don’t get into much detail on the background issues as the beavers will pick up enough as they go along
Cubs are excitable and easily engaged with program like this, so begin to challenge them. Choose a mix of activities which include thinking about what their futures will look like. Get them thinking and leave them off!
Sustainability and the SDGs are already part of their vocabulary and understanding. Build them a broad program from across the SDGs that will push them on to greater understanding. Include activities which will help them to empathise with people their own age in other parts of the world.
Form a new crew of those interested to take on the challenge, who can be put in a breakout room during meetings or organise their own separate calls. Ventures are ready to change the world, so encourage to challenge themselves and take on the more difficult topics.
Every activity sheet has a broad set of activities, but there is also a set of ideas on how to expand on the work. Rovers could set their own learning objectives through this program, and aim to build up their understanding and empathy, and move on to taking action on the issues which concern them most.
You could also take a group-wide approach including all sections, and make an individual competition to complete the most sheets- the possibilities are endless!
Once a sheet is completed, make sure to share it with us using the #SustainableScoutingfromHome / #SSFH
