2016 marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award in the UK by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
Over the last 60 years the Award has transformed the lives of millions of young people in 143 countries and territories around the world, equipping them for life. By celebrating this exciting milestone, we want to encourage millions more to get involved, either by doing the Award or becoming an adult volunteer.
Whether you are already involved in the Award, or looking for a new challenge everyone big or small can take part in the celebrations. After all, even 60 years down the line, to echo Kurt Hahn……there is still more in all of us than we think.
The Award in Australia is proud to support the international celebrations through the UK DofE’s Diamond Anniversary and is encouraging all Australians to participate in the Diamond Challenge. As this is an international milestone, Australian fundraising generated will be directed to supporting the development of the Award in the Solomon Islands.
