To pick up on Gino's point , when I mentioned various international
organisations as part of the consideration of citizenship I did not forget
WOSM/WAGGS ; when a boy or girl joins the Movement they become a member
of the World Scout / Guide organisation. However, I would consider a
knowledge of the international Scouting / Guiding organisation as part of
a knowledge of Scouting. Mike Tester made a good point recently about
knowledge of Scouting history and " culture " and I hope that Scouts are
aware of their International links.
The point I was trying to make is that as a citizen of the world it is
important to understand therole of international organisations ,
particularly those involved in educational , cultural and humanitarian work.
BSA recognises this through the " Citizenship in the World " MB.
