The theme of the 24th World Scout Jamboree is “Unlock a New World”. With this in mind, we will incorporate World Heritage sites in the names of base camps and sub-camps. A World Heritage site is a landmark or area chosen by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as having cultural, historical, scientific or other significance and legally protected by international treaties. The sites are considered important for the collective interests of humanity.
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

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”.
#PeaceDayChallenge. 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.
