As one of the main educational goals for the European Jamboree is to increase awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and to encourage everyone to work towards them wisely and responsibly. We would like to make ACT GREEN to be the most important idea for all, who will participate in the event. ACT GREEN is an idea strongly connected to each of 17 Global Goals and it means encouraging everyone to live more sustainably and responsibly. Our biggest aim is for everyone to WAKE UP for them to understand that there is no time to waste and that we have to start ACTING GREEN now. We would like our European Jamboree to be a space to create green habits – to ACT GREEN. The ACT GREEN idea will encourage us to organise the European Jamboree to be as sustainable and eco as possible.

This means that we will undertake efforts to:

  • reduce production of waste, usage of water and energy as much as possible
  • involve the European Jamboree participants in pre-jamboree ACT GREEN tasks
  • show every participant, IST and CMT member how small changes in our everyday life can make a big change to the whole world – we hope that there will be a lot of possibilities to build the knowledge and good habits during the whole event
  • inspire everyone to create the world we all live in to be a better and greener place!

Act Green

We would like to encourage every adult and youth participant of the European Jamboree to join our call for ACTion for the climate. As a generation, we are facing last moment to ACT for our earth to prevent unstoppable changes in the environment. The European Jamboree in 2020 will be focused especially on calling young people to be ACTive citizens in this area, based on our three pillars.

All the programme components and Jamboree site will serve to:

  • spread the message of what is the fight for the climate
  • motivate why to fight it
  • explain when
  • inspire how to lead that fight.

We are convinced that we need to be an example not only in the scouting & guiding community, but more importantly in society as a whole.
