The European Jamboree returns to gather young people from all over Europe in Gdańsk (Sobieszewo Island), Poland, from 27 July to 6 August 2020.

The event will strengthen our international community and provide young people in Europe with the opportunity to meet and learn from each other.

Under the educational motto ACT, the European Jamboree 2020 will:

  • Encourage Scouts and Guides (aged 14-18 at the time of the event) to discover their potential to change the world;
  • Raise Scouts’ and Guides’ awareness of challenges for Europe and for the world, as well as responsibility for their local communities;
  • Gain knowledge on how to act as an active citizen of Europe and of the world;
  • Build openness to the others to live in peace;
  • Learn how to embrace challenges, develop self-reliance, build self-confidence and spark off the need for continuous self-improvement;
  • Raise awareness, develop skills and shape attitudes to achieve the goals of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development through creating a learning environment for the future young leaders of local communities;
  • Give an opportunity to experience the amazing adventure on the campsite.
