This EC funded project is a partnership between Scouting and Guiding Associations, and non-profit organisations in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Slovenia, Greece, Scotland and Germany.
Partners are working together to deliver training to and develop materials for Scout and Guide Leaders to embed Global Citizenship within existing national Scouting and Guiding frameworks. The project will run until 2018.
In early 2015 a group of Scout and Guide Leaders from across Scotland were selected by their Associations to work with Scotdec.
These Leaders have participated in a number of Global Citizenship workshops delivered by Scotdec in Edinburgh. They have also participated in conferences in the Czech Republic and Slovakia with over 70 Scout and Guide Leaders from across the EU.

The project will also be publishing Global Citizenship resources for Scout and Guide Leaders. These will be available to download in Early 2017.
