The European Jamboree – a new, inspiring Scout and Guide adventure awaits you in the summer of 2020. After the last Eurojam in 2005 in the United Kingdom, the European Jamboree returns to gather young people from all over Europe and the world in Gdańsk, Poland to celebrate Scout and Guide values, strengthen our international community and provide young people with the opportunity to meet and learn from each other. Mark your calendars now to save the date from 27th July to 6th August 2020, and register your national contingent for the European Jamboree in 2020!
Educational Motto: ACT
Every Scout and Guide possesses potential to become a driver of social change. They are all invited to come to the Jamboree and discover their power! Scouts and Guides will inter-ACT with others of various cultures, of various languages and various countries. They will learn through adventures, eye-opening discussions, and inspiring workshops. They will discover their power and find out where their helping hands are needed. Scouts and Guides will have a chance to ACT using their new skills and make a change in the society.
All Scouts and Guides aged between 14 to 18 at the time of the event (Scouts and Guides must have been born after 26th July 2002 and no later than in 2006).
The European Jamboree 2020 will take place from 27th July to 6th August 2020.
Gdańsk (Sobieszewo Island), Poland.
