Scouts and Guides: Active Global Citizens

Working across Europe with Scout and Guide Leaders.

Scouts and Guides: Active Global Citizens

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.

Girlguiding Scotland and Scouts Scotland

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. 

From Sep 2016 the group of Leaders will be delivering workshops across Scotland for other Scout and Guide Leaders. If you are a Scout or Guide Leader in Scotland and are interested in participating in these workshops please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Workshops aim

  • To explore opportunities to incorporate Global Citizenship into Scout and Guide programmes and badges
  • Support you to broaden and deepen social and political participation of young people
  • To critically think about how Guiding and Scouting in Scotland can contribute to achieving the Global Sustainable Development Goals
  • To offer new and innovative resources for Leaders to use with Guides/Scouts

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