Badges and Awards 

World is an important part of the Scout programme. Through this zone our members can:

  • Gain a sense of inclusion within the worldwide family of Scouting
  • Increase their awareness of the wider natural and man-made world
  • Respond positively to international issues.

Each section has International and Global badges and awards. You can also extend the number of badges available by taking part in special ones offered by partnership organasations. They often have ready made programme ideas and can even send a speaker to help you run the evening!
