Question: Two movements: scouting and culture of peace, Are they related? CPNN article: Arab Jamboree in Alexandria: A delegation of the Algerian Muslim Scout

The relationship between scouting and the culture of peace goes back to the 1990's when I was at the UNESCO Culture of Peace Programme and we established a working relationship with the World Organization of Scouting based in Geneva, Switzerland.

We conducted culture of peace training for scouts through the Council of Europe and established an agreement which included the development of a scouting branch of the culture of peace news network (CPNN).  At one point we sent a trainer to the World Scout Jamboree held in Chile to train scouts as CPNN moderators.  CPNN was represented at the academic meeting in Geneva in 2007 to celebrate the 100 years of scouting (see The role of Scouting and the coming generation in the historic transformation from the culture of war to a culture of peace).

The scouts of Algeria and Korea were especially active in distributing and getting over a million signatures on the Manifesto 2000 commitment to practice a culture of peace in everyday life.  

Scouting organizations in Algeria and Argentina reported their work for a culture of peace in the World Report for the Culture of Peace in 2005 and 2010 for the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and  Nonviolence for the Children of the World.

Recently CPNN has carried articles on scouting initiatives for culture of peace in Senegal, Iceland and Algeria.
