The Scouts of the World Award (“SWA”) is an initiative to provide young people with more opportunities to face the challenges of the future. It aims to empower and engage youths to take action of world importance based on universal values of freedom, tolerance, equality, respect for nature, and shared responsibilities – criteria identified by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. There are two parts of the SWA – a Discovery Workshop and a Voluntary Service project.
The Discovery Workshop aims to expose young people to the global issues that our Earth and Country are facing – to Explore, Respond and Take Action. Besides raising awareness of our rich natural heritage and community, the workshop also seeks to equip the youth with development, facilitation and planning skills in preparation for the next phase – the Voluntary Service project.
The Singapore Scout Association is organising an SWA Discovery Workshop this year.
