SCOUTS PROJECTING A BETTER WORLD - TEAM JAZBEC
During the second day of the World Scout Youth Forum one of the main topics was the Global Youth Trends: Economy, Education, Health, Politics and Security Safety and Society. We discussed about these topics and how they effected our countries. Following with brainstorming about how scouting can help with these issues.
The wonderful experience was during the afternoon when 11 different National Scout Associations presented a few great projects that they are doing. Realizing how much scouts are doing to aid our communities with major issues that the United Nations recognize as Global Youth Trends. Taking education for example, Brazil brought scouting to the Amazonas, Mexico provides scouting experience to the less fortunate ones and the CJK countries (China, Japan and Korea) provide different programmes to children's at school.
We can discuss a lot about what others can do for us. But scouting shows everyday that we don’t wait for others to act. We take matters into our own hands and take action to aid where we can. The promise we all follow states that we have a duty to help others whenever we can. Together, we CAN create a better world!
