What is it?

An Instagram takeover is the process of taking the  European Jamboree account temporarily and sharing content with the global audience for a week. The goal of takeovers is to provide our followers with a behind- the-scenes look at the European Jamboree preparations in different countries, introduce our audience to your Contingent and of course to provide an opportunity to spread the message of Scouting and Guiding. The story should be fun, friendly, and educational, with a mix of photos, videos, boomerangs, etc. and some of your personal spice. You may share your Contingent’s preparations for the Jamboree in Poland, promotional activities in your country, your daily Scouting and Guiding activities, best practices on how you ACT in your local communities, etc.

The takeover is offered only to registered Contingents.

How does it work?

If your Contingent decides to take part in this project, you should send an e-mail to the Info Team with information about which week you would like to choose and what you intend to show. In reply you will receive all the technical guidelines and information. Takeover lasts for a week counted from Sunday (18.00) to Sunday (18.00).
