The Scouts of the World Award challenges all young people, Scouts and non-Scouts, to think about global issues and act upon them in their local community. It is the only award for young people provided by World Scouting. As part of the learning experience, you can gain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to help solve global issues at local level. The award requires a commitment from you to make your community a better place. On completion, you will be part of a network that provides inspiration to others to take action.
In September 2000, building upon a decade of major United Nations conferences and summits, world leaders came together to the United Nations Headquarters in New York to adopt the United Nations Millennium Declaration. This declaration committed their nations to a new global partnership meant to reduce extreme poverty and set out a series of time-bound targets with a deadline of 2015. These have become known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The 8 MDGs form a blueprint agreed by all the world’s countries and all the world’s leading development institutions.
The SW Programme begins development within the framework of the Strategic priorities “Youth Involvement” and “Adolescents” approved by the World Scout Conference in Thessaloniki, Greece in 2002. The purpose of the programme fundamentally remains educational. However, it does not mean that it does not seek an impact on society too.
In 2004, appreciative of its partnership with the United Nations (UN), the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) has signed an agreement with the UN to contribute actively to the campaign on MDGs. The SW Programme - meant to educate thousands of Scouts and non-Scouts to world citizenship - was launched.
In January 2006 the first Scouts of the World Award Guidelines were published.
This document gives guidelines on how NSO’s can implement the Scouts of the World Award, as an element of their Senior Section programme, and open it to all young people, members or not of the Scout Movement.
The production of this publication was possible thanks to the help of the Scouts of the World Technical Commission, the participation of Kandersteg International Scout Centre and hundreds of Scouts and experts around the world.
After four years of running the Scouts of the World Award it was decided that there needed to be some updates the the guidelines to make it more relevant.
The production of this publication has been possible by the work of Dominique Bénard and Andrés Morales from the World Scout Bureau, with the help and support of: Hakki Camur, Matt Franzke, Claire Petithomme, Daniela Rivera, Mark Shepheard, the Kandersteg International Scout Centre and participants in WONDERforums.
The Scouts of the World Award celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year.During the 40th World Scout Conference in Ljubljana, Sloveneia Scouts of the Wold Award celebrated it 10th Birthday, with a party and cake.
Over the last decade, thousands of Scouts and non-Scouts, from more than 40 countries around the world, have committed to “think globally, act locally” in making their communities a better place. #ScoutForum #SWAward
On 3 December 2014, WOSM and UNESCO signed an agreement to promote the World Heritage Education programme that encourages young people to take part in projects related to heritage conservation and protection.
Through this agreement, WOSM and UNESCO World Heritage will recognize projects undertaken by young people through the Scouts of the World Award programme at any of the UNESCO World Heritage locations. Detailed information will be sent to all National Scout Organizations early next year.
The partnership demonstrates WOSM's commitment to heritage conservation and protection worldwide, a commitment that is parallel to our mission of creating a better world.
The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Centre today launched the World Scouting – UNESCO World Heritage Recognition initiative at the 23rd World Scout Jamboree here.
The initiative aims to empower young people, particularly Scouts, to preserve and promote World Heritage sites through the framework of the Scouts of the World Award (SWA) Programme.
Through the initiative, Scouts and non-Scouts (aged between 15–26) who succeed in completing their SWA project at one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites will receive a World Scouting-UNESCO World Heritage Recognition badge, Patrimonito-Scout Badge, and certificate.
They will also be encouraged to develop Scout Heritage stories to inspire Scouts and other young people to protect their cultural and natural heritage.
The initiative hopes to raise awareness and mobilise young Scouts and non-Scouts to participate in World Heritage preservation and promotion; to promote active citizenship and help strengthen synergies among young people and their local communities.
Present at the reception were the World Scout Committee Chairperson, João Armando Gonçalves, World Scout Committee Vice-Chairperson and Messengers of Peace Liaison person, Jemima Nartey, World Scout Committee Member and Jamboree Director, Mari Nakano, WOSM Secretary General, Scott A. Teare, and the Focal Point for UNESCO World Heritage, Carméla Quin.
