The Future Scouts CODE is the set of explicit agreements that Future Scouts, Peers, and Guardians acknowledge upon official participation in our organization. Peers who honor their pledge are recognized with 𐤎MERIT.
The CODE stipulates our personal commitment to follow and participate in our organization, and commits us to respect the CODE of the Future Scouts.
Version 0.7 is our the first public publishing of the Future Scouts Code, which was collaboratively authored by the Future Scout Founding Peers (FSF).
Learn to Lead & Love to Live
I am in alignment with my own self-direction, I move freely and fearlessly in my decisions, ideas and actions. I am responsible for my learning, and there is no failure, only feedback. I transform my fear into curiosity. I support my Peers in following their own paths, and allow the lessons of the past to transform my vision of the future.
I understand participation in Future Scouts is a privilege that supports my development as a self-directed lifelong learner, and to pursue my preferred future every day.
My preferred future is a better world, a more caring world, and a thriving humanity.
A Future Scout imagines what futures are possible for themselves, their communities and our world.
A Future Scout questions assumptions, the status quo, and sheds biases that limit our sense of what is possible.
WHY NOT ME?
A Future Scout takes action on a personal level and knows that every Peer can positively impact the world.
It is important to understand and celebrate the interdependence of people, nature and society to thrive in an increasingly interdependent world.
Everything is in a constant state of flux. Adaptability and responsiveness are key to survival and success in the future. Learning is about finding and creating answers and methods for navigating the unknown.
It is our ability to have imaginative, open-ended creative thought and expression that makes the world a vibrant and enriching place.
It is our ability to foster understanding, discover who we are, comprehend our purpose and discover our passion as we increase our self-direction.
I will act in ways that respect the thoughts, feelings, beliefs, experiences and emotions of myself and others.
I will conduct myself in a way that is fair, honest and respectful of everyone and everything.
I will take responsibility for my actions and the consequences of my behavior.
My words and actions inspire others and will influence others to be positive contributors to our world.
