A new stand for Gilwell Reunion 2023 is the Climate Conscious Scouting stand which is in the Programme Zone on the Training Ground. The stand is all about supporting leaders to feel confident to speak to young people about climate change.

Abbie who is running the stall said the response has been excellent, with lots of people coming away with new ideas to run in their sections, as well as lots of people sharing their ideas with her.

There are lots of programme ideas available for you to use with sections available here:

“Scouts have always had caring about the environment at the centre of what we do. One of the first scout badges was for forestry. Being sustainable comes naturally to us. This is just bringing climate change to the forefront in 2023”.
