Chief Scout’s Platinum Award ICV list

International, community, and values (ICV) list

You’ll need to do two activities from the list. The two activities should come from different sections.

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. 

International

This section is all about exploring global issues and taking part in international opportunities.

  • Complete a three day expedition in the UK with similar aims to those of the Explorer Belt.
  • Take an active part in a project with an international development organisation. Present your experience to your Unit or a relevant audience, such as another section.
  • Take an active part in a camp in another country, for instance, a jamboree or moot. Present your experience to your Unit or a relevant audience, such as another section.

Community

This section is all about developing your knowledge and skills and putting them into practice to make a real difference in your local community.

Values

This section is all about reflecting upon your own and others’ beliefs and exploring what the Scout values mean to you.

  • Take a regular part in spiritual reflection. This could be within or outside of Scouts (for example, at a place of worship).
  • Take an active part in a project examining your own faith or beliefs and understanding how they affect you. Discuss your experience with your mentor or present your experience to a relevant audience.
