From a Social-Media post to a limited edition Badge: Supporting Refugee Activities


Scouts and Guides contributing to refugee support activities in their local communities in Europe (42): a story starting with a facebook-post ending with the production and selling of a limited edition badge “against xenophobia” in Austria (AT)

Not just since last summer the Guides and Scouts in Austria had become more and more active in refugee and migrant support activities in their local communities. Reason enough for Geo, a member of the social-media team of the Pfadfinder und Pfadfinderinnen Österreichs (PPÖ) and also behind the very successful Facebook page “Kurioses, nutzloses oder einfach interesantes Pfadfinderwissen“, and members of the PPÖ Facebook community to look for ways to support those working with and for refugees and migrants in Austria.
