If you are able to go away, you will be able to make contact with many people. Do keep in touch with these friends and consider a continuing programme of sharing experiences, visits or other exchanges.
The decisions and actions taken locally can increasingly affect people in other parts of the world. Think about the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the music we listen to and the television programmes we watch, they all offer us insights into how our lives have been 'globalised'.
We want to encourage young people to increase their understanding of the links between the personal, local and global and promote their active participation in actions to bring about change towards greater equity and justice.
Please do not be daunted!! Why not try this three step process to enrich your programme and further global awareness within Scouting.
The possibilities are endless! Think what is happening in the news, think of food, think of sport, think of music and TV, think of outdoor activities and the environment- its all global!
