PS If someone asks you what would you like for Christmas, I can recommend the booklet by David Smith If all the world were a village published by Bloomsbury which highlights in a very novel way what the sustainable developments goals are trying to achieve.


Global Youth Mobilisation for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

The World Organization of the Scout Movement has appointed Bear Grylls as its new Chief Ambassador, making him the first public figure to be named for the role. Bear is known by millions of people around the world as an outdoor adventurer, inspirational speaker, TV host, and best-selling author with a passion for Scouting. Now in his new role as Chief Ambassador of World Scouting, Bear will act as a global voice for youth education with the aim of inspiring more young people to join the Scout Movement and create positive change in their communities.

As his first official engagement as Chief Ambassador, Bear was on hand 23/24 November 2018 for an event hosted by the World Scout Movement at the United Nations headquarters to launch Scouts for SDGs – a mobilisation of 50 million Scouts to make the world’s largest coordinated youth contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.

Scouting steps up to take action for the Sustainable Development Goals

Scouting has made an extraordinary contribution over the years to improve the sustainability of our planet, promote peace, and tackle inequality. Earlier this year Scouts surpassed an incredible milestone by giving more than one billion hours towards sustainable development through local projects under World Scouting’s programmes, including the flagship Messengers of Peace initiative. 

Now, as a global Movement, we are taking that commitment one step further with Scouts for SDGs. By 2030, this unprecedented activation aims to engage 50 million young people in a coordinated effort to deliver two million local projects and an additional three billion hours of service for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Scouts for SDGs features a newly launched online SDG hub and a range of resources to support National Scout Organizations to raise awareness and take action for the SDGs. The initiative also leverages financial and in-kind contributions from the World Scout Foundation and a wide network of partners, including United Nations agencies and non-governmental organizations, to support local projects led by Scouts.
