Dialogue for Peace Passport ready for implementation in the Philippines
The Dialogue for Peace Passport is designed to be used by Scouts of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines in order to achieve the Dialogue for Peace Badge based on the goals of the D4P Manual.
The passport is derived from the Building Bridges: Guide for Dialogue Ambassadors of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID).
In order to achieve the D4P Badge, Scouts must first undergo the 4-day workshop to be empowered and trained for interfaith and intercultural dialogue. Afterwards, the Scouts will utilize the D4P Passport as a guide to achieve the badge.
The Dialogue for Peace (D4P) programme encourages scouts to acquire the knowledge, skills and competences they need in terms of Dialogue and peacebuilding, so that they can apply them in Scouting and in their everyday life. They can also develop a dialogue-related project to contribute to creating a culture of peace. The Dialogue for Peace Program is under the Messengers of Peace Initiative.
The passport is set to be launched on June 27, during the quarterly meeting of FaithFull - Proyekto Pagtuo.
The Dialogue for Peace Passport is contextualized by Eagle Scout John Dyrick Dormis, Executive Director of FaithFull - Proyekto Pagtuo, under the Boy Scouts of the Philippines Bacolod City Council.
