Messengers of Peace

Introduction

Scouts do some amazing things, from simple community actions to large-scale projects such as preventing bullying in schools in the UK, helping street gangs in El Salvador to reduce violence, cleaning up a playground in Texas and planting millions of trees all over Africa.

In some of the most difficult conflict areas in the world - Kashmir, Israel/Palestine and Rwanda/Burundi, to name a few – Scouts are coming together in local communities to make a difference. If you add all this together then Scouts, as part of a global Movement, are making the world a more peaceful place.

Observing this excellent work, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, and King Carl Gustaf of Sweden, came together to recognise Scouts as “Messengers of Peace”. They believe that the work Scouts are doing is very impressive, that Scouting should be recognised for its contribution to world peace, and that it should be supported to do even more.

World Scouting’s Messengers of Peace Initiative, launched by the World Scout Committee in 2011, aims to inspire the millions of Scouts who are doing great things in their local communities to tell the world about it, and thus inspire other Scouts to do even more. Any Scout project that brings a positive change in a community - its health, environment, social circumstances, safety or addresses conflict – is a Messengers of Peace project.
