4-H Canada has announced that following its annual general meeting today, the 4-H Pledge will now include “…and my world” at the end.
The idea to update the 4-H Pledge was initiated at the 2017 Global 4-H Network Summit by 4-H youth members themselves who, for the first time, met with other 4-H youth from around the world and realized that they belonged to a global community of more than seven million youth involved in 4-H in over 70 countries.

The updated 4-H pledge now reads:
I pledge
My head to clearer thinking,
My heart to greater loyalty,
My hands to larger service,
My health to better living,
For my club, my community, my country, and my world.
