World Scout Environment Award replaces World Conservation Award
The 38th World Scout Conference passed the Resolution 22/08 which recommended the World Conservation Award be phased out during the next triennium by National Scout Organizations which use it. National Scout Organizations were encouraged to adopt the framework for environment education in Scouting and incorporate the ideas through a regular review of their youth program and by offering the World Scout Environment Award. This helps to bring the environment education dimension of the youth program up to date with the situation of today.
Scouts Canada is now ready to phase in the new World Scout Environment (WSE) Award.
Phase In Period (January 2011 to September 2011)
As part of the phase in period Scouters should note these points of interest:
1. The WSE Award is to be worn in the same place as the previous World Conservation Award.
2. Any youth who has already begun earning the World Conservation Award may complete the requirements of such (does not have to switch).
3. If upon completion of the World Conservation requirements the badge is not available, the WSE Award badge should be used.
4. New Climate Change badges for Cub Scouts and Scouts are part of the WSE Award requirements.
