How We Change the World
- Inspirations from "Changing the World", the official song of the 22nd World Scout Jamboree Sweden 2011
1 September 2011

Inspirations gained from the song:

Do your best: Being a Scout you do your best for daily turns of good. If you are not doing your best, then you are indeed thinking too much on the vision to creating a better world, and on how we develop young people to become good citizens. A piece of the lyrics "And the change in you, means the world is changing too", in "Changing the World", the official song of the 22nd World Scout Jamboree Sweden 2011, pointed out a simple truth: a change of the world is initiated from your inner change. If you don't change yourself, then it is too naive to think that the world will be changed for you. This is "the simplest way" "we can start today" to initiate a change, and the method is "with a small step forward".

Let go: The golden true values of being a Scout is again doing your best for daily turns of good. The honor comes from the right attitude with the right acts, but not merely achievements and awards.

Creation: We can contribute ourself to creating a better world. Being a scout leader is one clear and specific way to reach the destination. If you are already determined enough to make your contribution, then start from the beginning by doing your best. You will finally gain the power of creation.
