Awarded for  awareness of "world issues and... (obtaining) necessary experience and skills to become a citizen of the world."

The Scouts of the World Award is an international Scout recognition administered by the World Organization of the Scout Movement. It was developed to give "young people more opportunities to face the challenges of the future" as identified by the United Nations Millennium Declaration in 2000. That declaration identified eight Millennium Development Goals and participation in the award helps one work towards those goals.

The award is designed to be administered through individual National Scout Organizations and is designed as a way to help improve the program of their senior sections.

Young people between the ages of 15 and 26 years are eligible to earn the award, regardless of Scout affiliation. According to WOSM, "this fact provides NSOs with a great opportunity to increase their membership at the local and national levels, resulting from the possibility to invite non-Scout persons (in the age covered by the Rover section, 18-22) to participate in the Rover Programme, and to encourage them, after completing the Scouts of the World Award, to be part of the Rover section."

The Scouts of the World Award has two components: "the Scouts of the World Discovery" and "the Scouts of the World Voluntary Service."

The Scouts of the World Network is open to Scouts having obtained the Scouts of the World Award.
