Explore the World with a Sustainability Challenge for Kids.
Everyday from Oct 4, 2021 - Nov 28, 2021 at 12:00 am - 11:59 pm
Children and youth are invited to take part in an epic, eight-week sustainability-themed challenge - “Around the World in 60 Days” - from Scouts Canada. Through fun and engaging activities rooted in sustainability, young Canadians will embark on exciting story-driven adventures set virtually in eight different countries. The activities will equip youth with tools and competencies to explore global issues; introduce topics such as inequality, food security, melting icecaps, mental and physical heath and more; and encourage creative problem-solving and reflection to drive awareness and development outcomes. Plus, with 265 hands-on Scouts for Sustainability activities accessible at scouts.ca, youth can explore their interests, take what they’ve learned a step further, and make an impact. Participation is free and youth don’t have to be Scouts to join in. Visit scouts.ca/around-the-world every Monday for a new video outlining the week’s challenge. The challenge runs October 4 to November 28. Share your adventures with #ExplorersNeeded.
