Multinational organisation

Should Denmark be the chosen host of the 27th World Scout Jamboree, we are committed to ensuring that the planning process reflects the diversity of WOSM's most significant international gathering. Our approach includes actively involving members from various regions, cultures, and language groups within the Scouting community in the planning team of the 27th World Scout Jamboree. We view this as a unique opportunity to embrace the diverse needs and expectations associated with a World Scout Jamboree, making it a truly international and inclusive event.

Youth involvement and camp organization

In Denmark, we have a strong culture of meaningful youth involvement and participation. In alignment with WOSM's strategic goals, we aspire to empower young people to be part of the highest levels of the planning team.  

To address this, we intend to establish an organizational structure where several leadership roles operate as partnerships. This approach means that two individuals will jointly oversee an area, allowing us to pair an experienced profile with a younger profile to share responsibilities. This not only enhances the resilience of the organization, but also ensures that work continues seamlessly even if one person needs to step away temporarily.

The Board, appointed by NSAs, ensures competence, while the Management Team, with shared leadership, oversees planning entities. A minimum of 25% of the team will be under 30. The National Support Group fosters inclusivity in decision-making, discussing national focus areas. The Advisory Board guides international aspects with youth representatives. The Project Office handles administrative tasks, supporting the Management Team for effective Jamboree execution.

Camp essentials

Recognizing the World Scout Jamboree's role as an educational event, it is essential that the fundamental campsite necessities are well-organized to ensure a well-run camp. This ensures that Scouts can devote their energy to learning and fully experiencing the World Scout Jamboree.

Food and nutrition

Food is a vital component of our well-being, and we acknowledge its deep cultural influence. As a result, we are committed to implementing measures to ensure that all participants have a positive culinary experience during their stay. Our goal is to provide an ample variety of food options, catering to diverse dietary and cultural needs.

Drinking water

Access to clean and safe drinking water is paramount, particularly in the summer. Denmark is fortunate to possess some of the purest underground water reserves. The drinking water in Denmark is sourced from reservoirs below ground, offering fresh, clean water with beneficial minerals, mainly iron and calcium. At the campsite, water will be readily available through water stations, supplied by municipal infrastructure, ensuring an ample and uninterrupted water supply.

Toilet and showers

Toilet and shower facilities can vary significantly by region. In our pursuit of a genuinely international camp, we aim to provide safe and comfortable toilet facilities that accommodate a range of preferences, including sitting and squatting toilets. Regarding showers, we are attentive to cultural preferences and will offer private shower facilities.

Transportation in Denmark

Transportation, both to and from the campsite, plays a crucial role in ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience for all participants. We will provide collective transport options from two key hubs in Denmark, offering hassle-free transportation to the campsite.

Transportation on-site

On-site transportation depends on the camp's layout, size, and terrain. In our commitment to sustainability, we will carefully plan the camp's layout to minimize transportation needs. This includes providing sustainable transport options for any long-distance travel within the campsite.

The heart of any World Scout Jamboree lies in the activities offered. Drawing from our experience with significant national jamborees, we are confident in our ability to provide a wide range of exciting and educational activities. Our aim is to organize activities in a manner that minimizes queues and waiting times, ensuring that all participants have the opportunity to engage in activities of their choice.

Educational event

A World Scout Jamboree is first and foremost an educational event, and as Scouts, we are dedicated to making learning a fun and exciting journey through non-formal methods. Our primary focus is to create a rich tapestry of activities for participants, offering them a sandbox where they can learn, play, experiment, and explore.

We aim to empower participants to set goals, make a positive impact, inspire others, take on leadership roles, experience both success and failure, become role models, embrace courage, make impactful decisions, and contribute to creating a better world. In this dynamic environment, we encourage Scouts to not only learn but also to apply their knowledge, developing essential life skills and a sense of responsibility that will serve them well in the future. It is through these experiences that they will grow as individuals and contribute to their communities and the world at large.

Quality over quantity

– a sustainable Jamboree

As a guiding principle, we prioritize quality over quantity to ensure that we create the best possible experience for the 50,000 Scouts participating in the event. This philosophy also aligns with our sustainability goals, where we believe that less can indeed be more.

By focusing on quality, we aim to provide a memorable and enriching experience for every participant. At the same time, our commitment to sustainability encourages us to minimize excess and waste, creating a more environmentally responsible and efficient event. This approach reflects our dedication to both the well-being of our Scouts and the planet.
