Do your part to keep Scotland beautiful with our new challenge badge!

To celebrate Earth Day 2016 Girlguiding Scotland is challenging its 50,000 young members across the country to help Keep Scotland Beautiful with a new challenge badge.

Created in partnership with Keep Scotland Beautiful, the challenge badge contains a wide range of activities grouped around the themes Research, Act and Campaign that members will complete to earn their badge.

Activities include organising a community clean-up to holding an eco-friendly picnic, blogging about environmental issues and writing to their MSP.

Launched today (22 April 2016) on Earth Day, as Earth Day aims to encourage people across the world to be more environmentally friendly. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.

Download the challenge pack or you can buy the Keep Scotland Beautiful challenge pack and the badge in our Edinburgh and Glasgow Guide shops or from Girlguiding Scotland’s online shop.
