Chief Scout’s Diamond Award ICV list

International, community, and values (ICV) list

You’ll need to do four activities from the list, including at least one from each area. You can include activities that you completed as part of the ICV list for the Chief Scout’s Platinum Award. This means that if you have the Chief Scout’s Platinum Award, you only need to complete two more activities.

We’re all about flexibility when it comes to the ICV list – you should be able to shape your own award and push yourself to develop in areas that you enjoy while developing skills and achieving things that make you proud. 

If you’re a Scout Network member, you can use the UK Scout Network website to search for local and national projects to get involved in that cover elements of the ICV list.
