Messengers of Peace (MOP) Badge

    Messengers of Peace

    The Messengers of Peace Award was established to inspire youths of all nationalities to take an active role in the preservation, propagation and perpetuation of world peace. Any Scout project that brings a positive change in a community - its health, environment, social circumstances, safety or addresses conflict – is a Messengers of Peace project. Since 2012, Scouts across the world have been sharing their community service initiatives online on To date, more than 620,000,000 service hours have been registered in over 40,000 community service initiatives.

    The badge may be awarded to any Scout whose voluntary involvement in a community service project has exceeded 10 hours. This may be a local or international community. Once again, it is required that groups follow the SDGs as a project guide, and make use of the ‘explore, reflect, local action’ method throughout the project.

    Participation in the Award follows a simple structure:
