Until a Scout actually participates in an international activity, this
knowledge usually tends to be in something of an abstract sense.
They know that other Scouts are out there, but haven't spoken to one.
(When I was a Scout, though, I didn't even know any other Scouts from
other troops in my area, let alone int'l.. but that's because we didn't
go camping for a very long time.)
>BSA recognises this through the " Citizenship in the World " MB.
Canadian Scouts who want to earn their Gold Citizenship badge must
either participate in an exchange program (to other parts of Canada)
or communicate with a Scout in another part of the world for 3 monts.
