International Activity Badge
How to earn your badge
- Find out about the World Scout Movement. Create a timeline of key moments that helped create and grow international Scouting.
- Take part in a traditional craft or creative activity from another country.
- In a language other than your own, introduce yourself and say a few basic, useful, everyday phrases.
- Take part in one of these events and report back to other Scouts on what happened:
- Jamboree On The Internet (JOTI) or Jamboree On The Air (JOTA)
- an international camp held in the UK
- links to Scouts in another country.
For number 2, traditional crafts from another country might include hieroglyphics, Chinese calligraphy, traditional tribal dress or masks, musical instruments, leatherwork, jewellery and accessories or woodcraft.
Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities. For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
