The Isle of Man UNESCO Biosphere Reserve has launched a brand-new initiative in cooperation with Girlguiding, the UK’s largest charity for girls and young women: the UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man Badge.
It seeks to connect girls and young women with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, as they learn more about sustainability and tackle issues such as hunger, poverty, gender inequality and climate change.
It helps them to get in touch with nature, build long-lasting friendships, challenge themselves, take the lead, make a difference to the world around them, and develop the skills to become confident young women and socially and environmentally conscious citizens.
“The badge will encourage young members and leaders in our organisation to think about the world around them – to understand the meaning of ‘community’, get involved and make things better. If we can instill these thoughts and actions in our young people, it will make our Island and beyond a better place.” Karen Walker, Commissioner of Girlguiding Isle of Man.
