To conclude what has been a turbulent month, Scouting Ireland are publishing a resource for our older age groups on racism, discrimination and inclusion. We cannot be silent on these matters, and want our Scouts to stand up as Messengers of Peace in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter and Pride movements. We are working on resources appropriate for younger sections on this topic so that everyone has access to the resources needed to help build a culture of peace, justice and inclusion in our communities.
We cannot hope for sustainable development without peace, stability, human rights and effective governance, based on the rule of law. Yet our world is increasingly divided. Some regions enjoy peace, security and prosperity, while others fall into seemingly endless cycles of conflict and violence. This is not inevitable and must be addressed!
