The World Challenge Award is ideally suited for completing at home, we have adapted the tasks and given you some ideas on how to complete the badge locally.

Whether you’re volunteering* in your local community or learning about an international issue, this award is all about exploring the world from your doorstop and making a positive impact.

How to earn your badge:

1, Choose an aspect of local community life and find out as much as you can about it.

2, Spend a day volunteering* with and finding out about a service in your local community:

  • What are their challenges?
  • Who relies on this service?
  • What positive impact could you have on this service in the future?

3, Take part in an activity that reflects upon and explores your own beliefs, attitudes and values (this may or may not include religious beliefs).

What values do we share as Scouts? Which Scout value means the most to you? Write a short blog or record a Vlog that fulfills the above criteria.

4, Take part in an activity that explores common beliefs and attitudes towards gender or disability in different societies.

You could look at this in the context of music, sport and fashion. Research PRIDE Month, find out more about it and record your evidence.

5, Take an active part in an environmental project.

6, Investigate and try to make contact with Scouts in another country.

Make sure you and your leader read the International Links Guidance here. I have contacts with lots of Scouts overseas, please ask your adult to ask a leader about this.

7, Take part in an activity that explores an international issue.

Take part in the World Environment Day Quiz, let me know how you get on.

Save your evidence, ask your adult to upload to OSM with a brief explanation of how you achieved the tasks against each tick box for that task.
With your adult’s permission we can then publish your work on our website and social media.
