What is Messengers of Peace all about?mop logo

All over the world Scouts are “Creating a Better World” by doing remarkable work in the communities in which they live. As Scouts, we are helping to alleviate a number of important social issues ranging from feeding the hungry to creating solutions to environmental issues, through the service projects we do. The Messengers for Peace initiative aims to bring this all together by creating a network of all the service projects throughout the world.

The programme was formally launched on the 28th September 2011 in Saudi Arabia by King Abdullah (Saudi Arabia) and the King Carl XVI Gustaf (Sweden). King Abdullah called on all of the Scouts the world over to be “the Messengers for Peace” and to extend their work.

Be a Messenger of Peace!
