To directly experience what German or South African Groups are doing for our joint campaign OUR WORLD - OUR CHALLENGE, there are different ways of getting into contact with one another in an environmentally friendly manner. In each provincial or diocesan office, there is one person who can pass on contact queries.
Each diocese in Germany has been allocated a partner province. Local groups can communicate and discuss issues among one another, whether it be about the campaigns in their own countries, differences in scout cultures and much more, by letter, e-mail or sending small parcels. If this is not enough, you could also try to work on projects simultaneously via internet and videostream. There should be no limits to your fantasy.
So, be creative and get active for our climate!
1.1.2011 - Start of the annual campaign
The 2011 annual campaign starts at the beginning of January. Local scout groups throughout the whole of Germany start projects, work on the subject of climate change and learn about South Africa. At the same time, our friends from the South Africa Scout Association start working on their annual campaign.
The bet's online counter goes online. Climate action points are entered and collected here!
10.6.2011 - 13.6.2011 (Pentecost)
The 2011 annual campaign "Our World - Our Challenge" is presented to approximately 4000 Scouts during Pentecost. They experience directly just what they can do to counteract climate change. A representative of the Federal Minister for the Environment, our patron, will be talking to the young climate protectors.
24th September 2011: International Day of Climate Action
This is the day on which we draw the attention of committed people all over the world to the issue of climate protection. On the International Day of Climate Action, environmentally friendly mobility and a commitment to global climate consciousness are dealt with under the motto "Moving Planet". DPSG groups will hopefully also be active at the places where they live. The main objective is that groups show initiative!
In the autumn, the collected climate action points can be traded in for climate action badges. Anyone who has managed to collect at least 100 points will have shown that he/she is a true climate-conscious scout.
The 17th COP (the "United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change") is taking place in Durban, South Africa. In the World Organisation of Scouting Movement's delegation, scouts from the Deutsche Pfadfinderschaft St. Georg and the South Africa Scout Association will also be present during the negotiations. On the sidelines of the conference, scout groups from Germany and South Africa will be drawing attention to their work and the annual campaign.
