Introduction

Scouts for SDGs is an unprecedented mobilisation of our Movement that will see 50 million Scouts make the world’s largest coordinated youth contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Scouts for SDGs is not a new World programme or award, but rather a systematic effort to leverage the Youth Programme and initiatives under the Better World Framework, including the Messengers of Peace initiative, to raise awareness and take actions for the SDGs. This reference resource explains how Scouting and the SDGs are connected, and how Scouts for SDGs will work.
