Outstanding commitment to peace

On 14 July 2018, the Internationaler Preis des Westfälischen Friedens was ceremonially awarded in Münster:
Pfadfinden in Deutschland was awarded the Youth Prize!

The everyday commitment of around 220,000 scouts and guides in Germany was honoured by the Economic Society of Westphalia and Lippe (WWL) and awarded the Internationalen Preis des Westfälischen Friedens excellent. "As the world's largest youth movement, Pathfinding aims to contribute to the peace-oriented development of young people so that they can become involved in society as responsible citizens," says Dr. Benedikt Hüffer, WWL Vice Chairman. "With common values such as living together on equal terms, tolerance towards others, but also respect for the environment, pathfinding builds on the ideal that all people can live together in peace".

The laudatory speech on scouting in Germany was held by the Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia, Armin Laschet, who described the scouts and guides as "role models who embody the ideals of a peaceful, tolerant world". The Prime Minister emphasized that today more than ever it is important to stand up for each other and to take care of each other. "What kind of world would it be if everyone followed the principles of the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides?" Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

"It is a great honour for us and the entire scout movement to receive such recognition," said rdp chairwoman Ylva Pössinger. Together with the chairmen Anna Sauer, Thomas Kramer and Sebastian Köngeter, she represented the rings of German scout and guide associations at the award ceremony in Münster, Westphalia. At the ceremony, in the presence of Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, four active Boy Scouts and Girl Guides from different parts of Germany received the prize on behalf of the Association: Lina Graumann, Rebekka Jaumann, Lena Simosek and Jakob Westarp.

The Internationale Preis des Westfälischen Friedens is awarded every two years, this year for the 10th time. Among the award winners are personalities such as Helmut Kohl, Václav Havel and Carla del Ponte as well as the carolers and the community of young Maltese people.
