To gain this badge, Scouts must 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 either:
  1. Take part in a Troop or Patrol activity with these Scouts.
  2. Take part in a Patrol or Troop activity based on things found out during the international contact.
This can be done in 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.

  • conservation
Then complete the following:
  1. Show an understanding of the issues involved.
  2. Take some action as a result of research.
