The Better World Framework

Isaac, a new Scout, produced this great artwork inspired by the harbour and the south coast and the challenges these marine environments face. Scouts Aotearoa has introduced a Better World achievement pathway which sits alongside the Adventure Skill and Capstone Awards.

The Better World Framework is designed to help youth make a difference to their community and environment. Isaac is working towards the Oceans badge. The programme has three parts;

  • Experience: Learn about an issue that is interesting to you. Find out about how it affects people, and what you can do to help.
  • Act: Participate in, Assist with, or Lead a project that helps with the issue you’ve been learning about. Remember to Plan, Do, and Review every part of your project.
  • Share: Share what you have done with others, and let them know how they can get involved.
