Have you or your Scout Group been involved in something that has helped to Create A Better World within your local community?
If you have you’re a Messenger of Peace, and you’re one of millions worldwide.
Messengers of Peace is way to recognise the billions of hours in which Scouts all over the world contribute towards making their communities and the world a better place. A Messengers of Peace (MoP) project could be small or it could be huge.
It’s also a never ending cycle – once you’ve completed a project or earned your badge you should then look for a new challenge to continue working towards peace.
The most common question about MoP is ‘what constitutes peace?’
While we automatically think of peace as the opposite to war it goes further than that; doing good deeds, promoting meaningful dialogue as a way of preventing or ending conflict between different parties, promoting equality and understanding and other ways of having a positive impact on your local or wider community.
Where to start?
Have a look at the sectional guidelines below and work with your mob/pack/troop/unit/crew to create a project. Don’t forget to take a photo of you doing the project and keep track of hours so we can upload it to the MoP portal and show the world what you’ve done.
