Build a Better World – Camp Song of Skátasumarið 2021

When you think
that things are going
down the drain,
the world is showing
signs of conflict and corruption
Then it’s easy to give up

If you feel
like you don’t matter
That you just
Can’t make it better
Endless damage and destruction
Then it’s easy to give up

But the world does not rest on your shoulders
You can find someone to share
The load of pushing up that boulder
You’ve got friends almost everywhere

‘Cause together we’ll build a better world
Every scout, every guide, every boy and girl
There is nothing that stops such a mighty force
All determined to change the course
x2

You know the world
It is improving
If we just
All keep on moving
In the positive direction
It’s gonna be a better place

And if we all
Just work together
On this SDG
Endeavor
For the planet’s own protection
It can be the perfect place

But the world does not rest on your shoulders
You can find someone to share
The load of pushing up that boulder
You’ve got friends almost everywhere

‘Cause together we’ll build a better world
Every scout, every guide, every boy and girl
There is nothing that stops such a mighty force
All determined to change the course

‘Cause together we’ll build a better world
All non-binary kids, every boy and girl
There is nothing that stops such a mighty force
All determined to change the course

When you think
that things are going
down the drain,
I want you knowing
That the world will keep on turning
There is no need to give up
