International Activity Badge

How to earn your badge

  1. Draw or create the World Scout Badge. Explain the meanings of each of its parts.
  2. Create a passport with information about a country. You include things like its currency, national dress, foods, religions, cultures, customs and languages.
  3. Cook a traditional dish from another country using an ingredient that you are not familiar with. Tell your leader what you liked or disliked about it.
  4. Take part in the activities of a celebration or festival that usually takes place in another country. Explore why the celebration or festival happens. What are the customs of the event?

 Top Tips

For number 4, visiting a festival or holding a celebration as part of a Pack evening or Scouting event would be good. Festivals Mela, Holi, Mardo Gras and Chinese New Year are good examples 


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
