Publication – Scouts and Guides: Active Global Citizens
The handbook Scouts and Guides: Active Global Citizens draws together the many resources that have been developed during the project, which ran from 2015 to 2017, and represents a lasting legacy of the partnership between Scout and Guide associations and NGOs. The aim of the book is to enable Scouts and Guides to explore and understand global interdependencies and the role they can play in them. It also seeks to inspire by offering examples of activities, opportunities and ideas for ways to recognize and participate in shaping global responsibilities in today‘s world.
By bringing together all the project tools and detailing the connections between Global Education and the Scout and Guide movements, we hope to strengthen the key role these global movements can play in preparing the next generations to act for the eradication of poverty and the promotion of equality and equity in our globalised world.
This book is for all those who want to integrate Global Education more comprehensively into the Scout and Guide movements in Europe and beyond. We hope it will serve as both a practical guide on how to do this as well as providing a rationale for why this is important. If you are an educator or leader who has an interest in finding out more about Global Education and how to connect it with your programmes, this publication is here to help.
