World Days to support!

Every year world days come up on our calendar to help us to learn and reflect about important issues in our communities. 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, Climate Justice and Gender Equality. Use these days to learn about global problems and to celebrate achievements of humanity.
