We are delighted to announce that the President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Duda, has agreed to be the honorary patron of the European Jamboree 2020. This official support is very important for all of those who are involved with the event, that takes place in Gdańsk next summer.
ZHP is honoured to have had the patronage of every Polish President since 1918. Although the European Jamboree 2020 has special significance for President Andrzej Duda, who was a member of scouting as a young boy. President Duda visited the Polish National Jamboree 2018. Where he enjoyed meeting scouts and guides from all over Poland. During his visit Mr Duda gave an inspirational speech to the young people gathered at the jamboree, encouraging them to follow values of Scouting in everyday life.
We hope that there will be another opportunity for a similar meeting with Scouts and Guides from across Europe in Summer 2020 on Sobieszewo Island.
