Give this badge task a try from home, record your evidence. Let me know how you get on, share it, tag it, show it, send it, and you’ll get the badge.


The World Challenge Award is ideally suited for completing at home, we have adapted the tasks and given you some ideas on how to complete the badge locally.

Whether you’re volunteering* in your local community or learning about an international issue, this award is all about exploring the world from your doorstop and making a positive impact.

How to earn your badge:

1, Choose an aspect of local community life and find out as much as you can about it.

You could learn about: Heswall Hall, The Dales, Heswall Churches, Oldfield Farm

2, Spend a day volunteering* with and finding out about a service in your local community:

*We understand you can’t volunteer right now, so choose a local charity shop and learn about who they support. Research Heswall Round Table and what they do. Find out about the lifeboat team in West Kirby. Services could be Charles Thompson Mission, Friends of the Dales, local care homes or Wirral Food Bank.

  • What are their challenges?
  • Who relies on this service?
  • What positive impact could you have on this service in the future?

3, Take part in an activity that reflects upon and explores your own beliefs, attitudes and values (this may or may not include religious beliefs).

What values do we share as Scouts? Which Scout value means the most to you? Write a short blog or record a Vlog that fulfills the above criteria.

4, Take part in an activity that explores common beliefs and attitudes towards gender or disability in different societies.

You could look at this in the context of music, sport and fashion. Research PRIDE Month, find out more about it and record your evidence.

5, Take an active part in an environmental project.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
