Educational Resources

Education is fundamental to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Scouting’s unique Youth Programme is designed to enable young people to be active global citizens and take action around the most pressing social, environmental and economic challenges facing our communities. 

Here you will find a range of educational tools, training and resources developed to support National Scouts Organizations. These materials explain the vision behind Scouts for SDGs, and provide practical guidance for how National Scout Organizations can align their Scout Youth Programme, and initiatives under the Better World Framework, to offer new learning opportunities that engage and educate young people about global issues.
