Imagine 40,000 young people from 169 countries in one place. 12 days of youth life through peace, friendship and adventure. One common vision; to Create a Better World. One opportunity to create a life-long impact among young leaders.
We invite you to be part of the 24th World Scout Jamboree. We know you will make a difference.
The Global Development Village is an interactive space within the Jamboree where National and International Organizations from all sectors working on the main challenges the world faces today have an opportunity to engage youth leaders through interactive workshops and exciting activities. More than 40,00 young people from around the world will have a unique opportunity to learn directly from world-class specialists how their local actions have a global impact, and how they can make a difference in their communities. Moreover, the awareness raised among participants replicates to our more than 50 million members in 169 countries as they go back to tell their stories and begin projects and partnerships with their local scout groups and other organizations. We are counting on you to further accomplish our mission of educating young people to play a constructive role in society.
Aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the GDV will have five key topics from which any of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can be approached. The five key topics are:
- Partnerships for Youth
International Organizations will be able to participate actively in the Global Development Village through:
