    Scout Global Challenge

    Hi all

    Could any one give me some ideas as to how I can help one of our Scout get his Global Challenge as he was unable to go to Jamboree and has not had the contact with overseas Scouts.

    Any Ideas welcome.
    Cheryl

    Complete all the activities in one of the following two areas:
    .Area 1: International contact
    Make contact with Scouts from another country outside the United Kingdom.

    Then

    Take part in a Troop or Patrol activity with these Scouts.

    or

    Take part in a Patrol or Troop activity based on things found out during the International contact.

    This can be done a number of ways, for example through Nights Away in the UK or overseas, the Internet, pen pals, Jamboree on the-Air (JOTA), Jamboree-on-the-Internet (JOTI), or Lands of Adventure.
    .Area 2: International issues
    Choose and investigate an international issue.

    For example:

    a.Trade

    b.Health

    c.Water & sanitation

    d.Environment

    e.Conflict

    f.Refugees

    g.Peace

    h.Tourism

    i.Homelessness

    j.Poverty

    k.Animal welfare

    l.Conservation.

    Then complete the following:

    a.Show an understanding of the issues involved.

    b.Take some action as a result of research

    c.Compare how the issues affect the UK and countries overseas.


    So if he investigates an issue, he doesn't need to have had contact with overseas Scouts - hope this helps.

    I would also suggest that you get in touch with the Wardens of the larger campsites near you - Thriftwood often has international groups staying - and see if you can arrange for the Scout to be there to welcome the visitors and spend some time with them.
