Introduction to Champions for Nature Challenge

The Champions for Nature Challenge is a learning opportunity developed under the Better World Framework and Scouts for SDGs mobilisation in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The Challenge encourages young people to discover more about nature, biodiversity, and sustainable lifestyles, enabling youth to take concrete actions for our planet. It also empowers young people to be active global citizens.
The Champions for Nature Challenge supports the development of a specific set of competencies in young people to adopt responsible behaviour towards the environment connected to the Earth Tribe learning paths of Better Choices, and Nature and Biodiversity. This set of competencies is complementary to many others that Scouting recognises, as well as other recognized by other institutions aligned with Education for Sustainable Development Goals.
By taking up the Champions for Nature Challenge, young people develop their knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) be part of a global youth movement for environmental action.
This Challenge is designed for all young people from seven years and above, eager to discover new ways to advocate and contribute to the protection of nature and develop new consumption habits that actively contribute to protecting our natural resources. The Champions for Nature Challenge offers meaningful content and activities for each age range and capacities.
