In Singapore, we affirm in our national pledge “regardless of race, language, or religion”. However, how does the aspect of race play a part in our daily life? Are we all truly treated “regardless of” race? Scouting is a global movement that aims to build a diverse and inclusive environment for all, so how can we as Scouts work together to bring this conversation forward? What can we as Scouts do to reduce race-related prejudices?
This activity is designed and developed in consultation with a diverse group of people from different backgrounds, faiths, and affiliations.
We endeavour to present this activity in a neutral and balanced manner.
