Global Messengers of Peace is an initiative to serve our local communities and other communities around the world by using UN Sustainable Development Goals as building blocks of peace. Goals are embedded into courses as part of Global Learning and Engagement initiatives. Project also use current Scouting Messengers of Peace projects to related them to the Goals and share them as best practices in other countries.

Scouts, as local Messengers of Peace, also learn from other projects. Scouts in one location could collaborate with other projects by sending donations, books, or providing resources. Scouts can replicate successful projects and share their own projects using social media.

We will use our social media resources fb.com/scoutingadventures (English), fb.com/NoticiasScouts (Spanish), our video channels, and Scouting blogs (Scouting Adventures). We will also combine information with our university partners Global Learning News and fb.com/globallearnnews.

Events and initial resources include:
International Peace Day Labyrinth (Sep 21, 2016 at Florida College of Jacksonville)
Hiroshima: 70 Years Later: Origamis for Peace
TEDxFSCJ Salon about Youth, Leadership, Technology, and Peace.

We ALL are “#GlobalMessengersOfPeace

Sustainable Development Goals | United Nations

Sustainable Development Goals are 17 goals to transform our world. The challenge is to add them to our educational, professional, and personal goals.

On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you.Do you want to get involved? You can start by telling everyone about them. We’ve also put together a list of actions that you can take in your everyday life to contribute to a sustainable future.

List of actions to saving the world. Select one to start today. Share which one are you doing and why?

Global Messengers of Peace. We ALL are Messengers of Peace. The Dalai Lama said today “On this International Day of Peace, we must remember that peace cannot come from prayer alone. It requires action”. . We say that we should Think Globally, Act Locally and Globally. As Global Messengers of Peace, we should work in our local communities and share what others are doing in their own communities. As Global Scouts we ALL should be involved as #MessengersOfPeace and share our service to other groups, students, and communities. We are expanding our #ScoutingAdventures to our students in college and universities. At the same time, we are sharing what other groups are doing to work for #GlobalPeace. We ALL are #GlobalMessengersOfPeace.
