Civil society and political institutions matter if we are to achieve the development goals. Civil society can play a decisive role in achieving the goals, if the mobilization and training done in civil society is supplemented with building strong political institutions. Strong political institutions are the foundation of achieving them, civil society is the propeller of change. I will argue that the youths peaceful actions are the most effective weapon to make a real major impact, particularly, if they have learned to reach compromise, design and executive actions in a binding community, such as the scouts. However, to unleash the potential of scouting, scouts must critically rethink how they engage in society.
