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.

RoverNet – VentureNet 2019 of the European Scout Region

RoverNetVentureNet_updated

One of the main conclusions from the previous RoverNet and VentureNet Meetings was the need and desire of Venture and Rover Commissioners to continue to have exchange opportunities and to continue to meet regularly as a network.

As a result, in cooperation with the Scout Association of Croatia, the European Scout Region will be organising a meeting for National Commissioners for Rovers and Venture Scout age sections in Croatia in spring 2019. While it is considered one event, some of the programme and the content of the meetings are separate and different.

RoverNet is following a long series of European initiatives defined for this age section (Roverway, Agora, youth exchanges, youth empowerment, etc.) will try to build on existing projects and programme frameworks.

VentureNet aims to consolidate the network and explore the possibilities for future cooperation, potential partnerships and Regional support initiatives/frameworks.

The 2019 edition of RoverNet – VentureNet is scheduled to take place in Zagreb, Croatia, from 11 to 14 April 2019.

More details, including the excat venue, will be released in due course.
