International Guiding

Learning about Guiding and Scouting in other countries is an important part of the Australian Guide Program. This section of the website has some stuff that might be useful for your own programming.

The Four World Centres

Links of Unity

An article I wrote about what the Links of Unity REALLY mean.

A list of the Links of Unity.

A game that can be used to teach/reinforce the Links of Unity.

Multicultural Games

International Food
This website has recipes and information about over sixty countries. Well worth exploring.

Information about countries

World Fact Book 2002 has links to information about 270 countries, including some I have never heard of:

World Flags with pictures

World reference maps


Here is a collection of links to pages about Australia that you might like to explore for Thinking Day or just for fun
