What is aBetter World project?

A Better World Project is when Scouts:


Identify a problem or area for improvement related to people, inequality, or nature.


Apply their innovation, teamwork, and problem-solving skills to make a difference.


Reflect on the connections of the problem with the wider world and understand how Scouting values can support positive change.

Examples ofBetter World projects:

Using the Sustainable Development Goals to guide inspiration your project could:

Re-plant Native forests.

Run a community clean-up day.

Support refugee integration into your community.

Collaborate with local social or environmental initiatives.

· Meetings, trainings, or camps that focus on scouting skills or earning badges, but aren’t based on community projects probably aren’t Better World projects. Planning your regular programme can take lots of forms, so you should see if you can involve community actions in your next activity.

· Attendance at a Jamboree, JOTA-JOTI or Conferences. Large events are great for inspiring change but may not always involve community action

· Projects that don’t make a connection with the wider community outside of scouting.
