International: introduction

International activities and international understanding are an integral part of Scouting.

Our relationships with Scouts and other organisations throughout the world lead to better understanding of people and issues. The UK Scout Association is part of a worldwide movement - there are Scout Associations in 216 countries and territories, and we are all member of the World Organisation of Scout Movements (WOSM).

What better way to fulfil the aim of Scouting and the challenge set by our Founder to 'leave the world a little better than you found it?' Scouts can and do make a difference. Have a go!

Whether you're planning a straightforward camping trip or want to get involved in development projects that can make a real difference, introducing an international angle into your balanced Programme is a perfect way to broaden a young person's horizons.
