(DPSG/Westernohe) – Nature and the environment have been core elements of Scouting since it’s beginning: camping, hiking, mountaineering, out-door games, and many other typical Scouting activies. A wide range of things Scouting is associated with is taking place outside. But…

– How much do Scouts really know about the environment they use for their activities?
– Is the protection of nature just a lip service or indeed one of the objectives?
– Are there any innovative projects to reduce negative impact on the climate and weather?
– Do Scout Associations implement the World Scout Environmental Programme and what experience did they gain?
– How can Scouts influence the environmental legislation processes in their countries and on European level?

DPSG’s SCENES Scout Centre Westernohe

These are just a few questions DPSG, one of the National Scout Associations in Germany, is trying to find answers to. And that’s why they are organising an international seminar on “Green Future – Networking fro the Environment” at their SCENES Centre in Westernohe (Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany) this coming August.

If this is as important for you and your Association as it is for DPSG and many other members of WOSM and if you, too, want to “leave the world a little better than you found it”, then make sure you come to Germany from 22 -25 August 2013 to share, learn, discuss and network for the environment!
