Resources for Groups

Youth Groups, including Scouts, Guides, Woodcraft Folk, clubs and societies often work towards badges and activities through their associations that highlight sustainability themes.

  • Activities for these badges could include:
    • Junk modelling, pond dipping, mini-beast hunting, growing plants from seeds, leaf printing
    • Turning rubbish into something useful, building a bug hotel or making bird feeders
    • Volunteering with a local charity (we’re always looking for volunteers on our marketing, events and behaviour change projects) and there’s also opportunities with local organisations for tree planting, river cleaning and litter picking too.

Check out our schools resources for links to age-appropriate ideas and activities.

Sustainable St Albans’ Climate Champions are also available to visit your group (at no cost) to share their knowledge and tips to understanding climate change. Climate Champions are comfortable to speak at events and meetings about the climate, why action is important, and what SSA does, in an accessible, friendly and age-appropriate way. Get in touch to arrange a visit from a Climate Champion.

Badges for young people at every level of the Scouting and Guiding movements include reference to respecting and exploring the outside world, global issues, waste and recycling, animals, gardening and wildlife.

Church workshops and play events can fulfil sustainability targets and reuse materials while engaging young people in climate change knowledge and awareness too.
