It’s Great to hear that Scouting and Guiding have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for Global Contribution towards peach and dialogue

One of our Founders Calls to Action is “With small actions, we can become Messengers of Peace. Baden Powell left us a Mission and we promised “to leave this world better than we found it”

The Nobel nomination was submitted by Norwegian Liberty Party MP, Solveig Schutz, former Chief Commissioner of The Guides and Scouts of Norway and a current volunteer for the Scout Movement.

“The Scout Movement is all about giving young people the tools they need to solve the challenges of the future while building a strong civil society. This work is vital to world peace,” said Mrs Solveig Schytz in her nomination.

“At a time when our world is threatened by so many international challenges, be climate, wars or the pandemics, we need a counterweight to egoism and nationalism. We need to offer young people a chance to rally around a set of common values and the belief in service, not only to one’s own community but to international society.”
