Scout Associations throughout the world have responded to various wars and terrorist attacks by offering sympathy and support.

Through special activities, leaders can help Scouts come to terms with the impact of war and terrorism.

After an activity, in a way which is suitable for the ages of the Scouts, try to generate a discussion with a view to encouraging them to think what they can do to help. Be careful to say that Scouting is not a political organisation and that we must not be seen to be indulging in propaganda.
