International crises

Activities and resource to help you respond to, and learn about, international crises.

If a crisis is happening overseas, Scouts in the UK want to help. Every year multiple events happen around the globe that make the news and can impact the lives of young people.

With thanks to Save the Children and British Red Cross, we’ve put together some resources to help you address this topic with your groups and suggested some things you can do to help.

The United Nations can provide more information about refugees and to learn about World Refugee Day, which is on 20 June each year .
