Some fantastic resources have been produced to help Scouts earn their badge.
To gain this badge, Scouts must complete the requirements below:
Find out about an environmental issue that is important to your local community. Examples include:
energy efficiency in the home
local conservation groups
water or air pollution
Take part in a Troop activity that improves local conservation. Examples include:
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.
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.
