Campaigning for Partnerships in Scouting – A toolkit

How would you plan a donation project to support a scout organization in a foreign country? Which role does social media play in the communication with international scouts?

Without any doubt, international partnerships among scout associations are absolutely vital for emphasizing the global scope of the scout movement. International partnerships enable kids and young adults to explore foreign cultures and to learn from each other. Beyond that, partnerships with countries of the global south enable the scout movement to support young people in less prosperous regions in this world.

In the past we identified communication aspects and the need for campaigning, for example in order to promote a donation project or a newly partnership program, to be a common challenge for many scout associations. The North-South Network, which started the Partnership Events in Europe, created a toolkit that is freely available to all scouts.
