How to earn your badge:

  1. Find out about an international charity; what do they do and why is it important?

    Your chosen charity could support global issues such as water and sanitation, poverty, refugees and disaster relief.

  2. Monitor the waste you produce as a Cub Pack and make a plan to reduce, reuse and recycle your Pack’s waste.
  3. Take part in an international awareness day or week.

    You could take part in World Water Day (March), Refugee Week (June), World Environment Day (June) or World Toilet Day (October). You can find more information on theĀ United Nations website.

  4. Think about what you would need to survive if you became homeless because of a disaster, like flooding or an earthquake.

    Decide what your five most important things would be and discuss with your Cub Pack.
