Global Conservation Activity Badge - Old Requirements

Global Conservation Activity Badge - Old Requirements

Some fantastic resources have been produced to help Scouts earn their badge.

To gain this badge, Scouts must complete the requirements below:

  1. Find out about an environmental issue that is important to your local community. Examples include:

    • recycling

    • energy efficiency in the home

    • water conservation

    • local conservation groups

    • water or air pollution

  2. Take part in a Troop activity that improves local conservation. Examples include:

    • recycling

    • wildlife

    • energy

    • pollution

    • traffic fumes

    The activity should involve at least five sessions over some weeks or a more concentrated project done over a shorter period of time, perhaps at a weekend conservation camp.

  3. Get involved in a campaign to make others aware of an environmental issue. Examples might include:

    • writing about it to your MP or other local agencies

    • use of an original, eye-catching method to inform others about saving energy or resources

    • speaking to a community group

    • recycling printer cartridges, tools or spectacles etc to aid an overseas development project


If you need help designing alternatives to these requirements for those with special needs please contact the Special Needs Office at Gilwell Park.
