In the summer of 2015, Japan will be welcoming 30 000 Scouts from all over the world to the 23rd World Scout Jamboree. The theme for the event is "Wa – A Spirit of Unity".
The World Scout Jamboree is the largest regular event organised by the Scout Movement, and takes place every four years. It is above all an educational event to promote peace and understanding. The World Scout Jamboree includes a wide variety of activities and also places great importance on the everyday life and interaction on the campsite.
Participants must be 14-17 years old at the time of the event. If you are 18 or older you can take part as International Service Team (IST, volunteer staff). You register through your National Scout Organization, and are part of a National Contingent.
