Conservation Volunteers Australia
Scouts Australia is proud to announce that it has just signed an agreement to collaborate with Conservation Volunteers in an effort to preserve the Environment. To that effect, Conservation Volunteers will be working with Scouts Australia to develop a suitable Scout Badge which recognizes and commemorates the partnership between these two organisations. Further discussions to develop this new Badge in line with the Scouts Badge requirements will be pursued by the National Volunteer Engagement Manager.
Conservation Volunteers Australia's mission statement is to attract and manage volunteers to participate in projects that protect or enhance our environment and heritage. Similarly, Scouting plays an important role in connecting people with the natural world, teaching Scouts to take positive action to protect the environment. This collaboration is therefore a significant one for both Scouts Australia and Conservation Volunteers Australia. More information on this collaboration as well as the unveiling of the New Badge will follow shortly.
