The purpose of the United Nations Challenge Badges is to raise awareness, educate and, most of all, motivate young people to change their behaviour and be active agents of change in their local communities. Challenge Badges are appropriate for use with school classes and youth groups, and are endorsed by WAGGGS and WOSM. They include a wide range of activities and ideas that can easily be adapted by teachers or leaders. Additional badges are available or are being developed on a number of other topics, including: Agriculture, Biodiversity, Climate Change, Energy, Forests, Gender, Governance, Hunger, Nutrition, the Ocean, and Water. The Soils Challenge Badge is designed to help educate children and young people about the vital role that soils play in supporting life on Earth. The badge looks at how soils are created, soil uses and how soils are being affected by human and climatic pressures. It includes a wide range of activities and ideas to stimulate learning about soil and how we can better manage soil resources to ensure that we have a sustainable future.
