Children and youth across Canada are invited to Explore the World and take part in an epic, eight-week sustainability-themed challenge – “Around the World in 60 Days” – from Scouts Canada. Through fun and engaging activities rooted in sustainability, young Canadians will embark on exciting story-driven adventures set virtually in eight different countries. The activities will equip youth with tools and competencies to explore global issues; introduce topics such as inequality, food security, melting icecaps, mental and physical health and more; and encourage creative problem solving and reflection to drive awareness and development outcomes.
Plus, with 265 hands-on Scouts for Sustainability activities accessible at scouts.ca, youth can explore their interests, take what they’ve learned a step further and make an impact that is meaningful to them. Participation is free and youth don’t have to be Scouts to join in. Visit scouts.ca/around-the-world every Monday for a new video outlining the week’s challenge. Share your adventures with #ExplorersNeeded.
