Scouts on Island are setting the pace for a more sustainable planet.

It comes following The Scout Association adopting a UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man badge.

However to earn it – Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers will have to undertake challenges relating to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

They aim to connect people and forge partnerships for a more peaceful and prosperous planet.

Girlguiding Isle of Man adopted the badge earlier this year with more than 170 members then going on to earn it, by completing tasks such as collecting for the local food bank.
