Scouting is proud to have given generations of young people equal opportunities to grow and develop their full potential through empowering and enriching experiences regardless of their background. The Movement is open to everyone, no matter who they are or where they come from. At the 41st World Scout Conference, we pledged to support UN Women’s HeForShe initiative by inspiring millions of Scouts to work towards creating a better, gender-equal world by 2020. Since then, Scouts from all over the world have responded with a resounding “Count me in!” While much has been achieved, a lot more still needs to be done. That’s why UN Women and World Scouting have together developed a HeForShe Action Kit for Scout Leaders that includes a series of activities designed to get young people of all ages thinking about gender equality and what they can do about it. It is designed for use in all kinds of Scouting activities, from hiking to training sessions, and can be adapted depending on the age and maturity of the Scouts themselves. We invite you to use the Action Kit and make a commitment to become an advocate for gender equality in your community! We recommend the following steps to start your journey:
