Queen's Scout Award: International, Community and Values (ICV) list

Complete six activities, two from each topic area. This can include activities completed as part of the ICV list for the Chief Scout's Platinum or Chief Scout's Diamond Award. So, if you have the Chief Scout’s Platinum Award you only need to complete four more activities, and if you have the Chief Scout’s Diamond Award you only need to complete two more activities.

An activity cannot count for this requirement if is being used for any other requirement of the award (e.g. taking part in an international camp cannot be used for both Residential and an International requirement).

The ICV list is designed with flexibility in mind. This flexibility enables you to individually shape your award, and push yourself to develop in areas that you enjoy and are passionate about. You will be able to develop your skills, be proud of what you have achieved and most of all, enjoy yourself.


This section is all about exploration – both around global issues and taking part in international opportunities.


This section is all about you developing your knowledge and skills, and putting them into practice to make a real difference and impact on your local community.


This section is all about you reflecting upon your own and others beliefs and exploring what the Scouting Values mean to you.

Guidance notes

Below you will find some practical ideas, guidance and examples for each section of the ICV list.

Scouting helps you to develop you as an individual and give you skills for life. Take time to reflect on how each activity helps you both in and outside of Scouting; make use the Get Ahead: Scouting and Employability resource to do this.

If you are a Scout Network member, use ukscoutnetwork.org.uk to search for local and national projects to get involved in that cover elements of the ICV list.




This list was updated in January 2017, following feedback from Members and consultation.  This included a change in the name of the list, from International Environment and Values (IEV), to International Community and Values (ICV).  For more information about this change, please see scouts.org.uk/programmeupdates
