How to earn your badge
- Keep a diary for a week, showing how you have recycled or saved energy at home.
- Try different kinds of Fairtrade products. Talk about the benefits of Fairtrade in the world.
- Create a ‘zoo’ of endangered animals. Find out why they are endangered. You might include pandas, South China tigers, black rhinos, Sumatran orang-utans, Amur leopards, vaquitas or Hawksbill Turtles.
- Use a soft drinks bottle to create a water filter using sand and pebbles. Talk about the problems some people have finding clean and safe drinking water.
Every individual who undertakes an activity badge should face a similar degree of challenge and as a result some requirements may need to be adapted. It is completely acceptable to change some of the requirements of the badges to allow individuals to access the badge (for example where there are special needs, cultural issues, or religious considerations to take into account) and the requirements outlined for activity badges do allow for some flexibility in order to obtain the badge. If you would like help or advice when considering adapting the requirements of a badge please contact UK Headquarters.
