The sustainable development goals
The sustainable development goals were created by UN. They decided to create 17 goals that are to be reached by 2030. They’ve made goals that concern every single person on this planet, so they spend from poverty to education. Their aspiration was to make their global goals edible, so they wanted to make it easy to start changing the world. Schools, Organization and businesses have already started implementing ways to improve parts of the world, within their local communities.
Scouting and the SDG’s
The fourth scout law says ‘A Scout belongs to the worldwide family of Scouts’. With the law we promise to commit to being active citizens both in our local communities and on a global level. With our big family of scouts that all commit to being active citizens, it is our duty as scouts to help develop the world. Therefor it only makes sense that we, as scouts, help the UN achieve the 17 sustainable development goals.
As Scout centres it is our obligation, that we stand on the frontline and make sure that We are the good example. We want to make sure that we show the scouts that scouting can make a difference on a global level as well as at a local level. This is the reason, we decided that this year’s ‘International Centres Day’, of course, needed to concern the Sustainable Development Goals.
