The Diversity & Inclusion Priority Project Group has been very active in reaching out to all National Scout Organisations (NSOs) since the Regional Scout Conference in Berlin in August 2013.

But do you know what has been done so far and what is planned for the remaining period of the triennium?

#ScoutRESPECT - creating a world built on respect

#ScoutRESPECT – creating a world built on respect

One activity, the #ScoutRESPECT Campaign was launched on Social Media and aims to highlight some of our work promised to you, our members, as a result of the last conference.

Check the current Regional Scout Plan to find the area, which focuses on Diversity & Inclusion. You will see that it is a very wide area of work needing diverse ways to address the issues.

But that’s not all. We translated the Plan into real actions. We are developing support and training experts to help NSOs to be more open, sometimes taking their first steps towards a more diverse membership, wanting to grow: as people, as involved individuals and as the Movement.

Last year our actions involved several trainings. This stimulated action plans at local level as participants returned home with renewed energy and encouragement to make a real change in their units. We know that many are taking action to make our Movement more diverse and inclusive. Take the plunge, let us know in words and pictures what you are doing!

Be proud of what you are already doing to be more diverse and inclusive and share with us. Tell us your different stories and make contact with Claire and Kasper, our coordinators for Diversity & Inclusion, so that we can list your successes, good practices and lessons learned to share with others. Let us learn and grow together. And who knows, maybe you can work with others to share a good idea that worked for you.


In the meantime, please do use our #ScoutRESPECT campaign: share it on your own Social Media, promote it and spread the common goal: Creating a Better World!
