European Scout Region - Leading the Way to Net Zero
Scouting has always cared for nature. It is where our activities take place, the source of inspiration for our educational programmes, and a cornerstone of our values.
Scout Law asks all Scouts to care for the animals. In recent years, as the world and scouting gained a better understanding of the human impact on the environment surrounding us, naturally, scouting started to look at its practices more closely. Leave no trace is a rule known by many, and our movement has been working increasingly to bring it to a new meaning, working to make international Scout activities more and more climate-neutral.
This strategy builds on the resolutions adopted at the World Scout Conference and the European Scout Conference. It provides the European Scout Region with a holistic approach and a clear purpose for reaching climate neutrality by 2030.
