Scouts of the World Discovery and Trainer's Seminar at KISC: 30 August - 4 September, 2010
Two events to support the development of the Scouts of the World Award will take place in Kandersteg International Scout Centre from 30 August to 4 September 2010. A Scouts of the World Discovery will be organised for Scouts aged 15-26 years old in the area of environment/sustainable development, and in parallel there will be a seminar for Rover Scout Commissioners and Trainers who are interested in developing Scouts of the World in their Associations. The seminar for Commissioners and Trainers will cover all three aspects of the Scouts of the World Award – peace, environment/sustainable development and community development.
Scouts of the World Discovery
The aim is to offer a Scouts of the World Discovery to young adults who are interested in working in the area of environment/sustainable development to achieve their Scouts of the World Award. Kandersteg is a SCENES centre and has a well-developed programme on environment education and sustainable development. The event will enable young people to explore issues related to the environment/sustainable development and develop the knowledge and skills to plan a project related to the environment in their home location.
It is important that the participants are from Scout associations that are currently offering Scouts of the World Aware as part of their Youth Programme or are working with Rover Scout Commissioners to develop the Scouts of the World Award in their national association.
This event is open to Scouts aged 15-26 years of age. Scouts under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by and adult over 18 years of age.
Scouts of the World Award Seminar for Commissioners and Trainers
The aim is to offer Commissioners and Trainers an opportunity to look in detail at the requirements for the Scouts of the World Award and develop an understanding of the resources, knowledge and skills that are required to support the delivery of the Scouts of the World within the Youth Programme of an association. This event will run in parallel with the Scouts of the World Award Discovery so that the Commissioners and trainers can experience the practical implementation of the Scouts of the World Discovery.
Commissioner and Trainers are welcome from NSOs that have adopted the Scouts of the World Award and those who are considering adopting this as part of the Youth Programme for Scouts aged 15-26 years.
