In the first days of April 2023 in Gdańsk, the Jamboree Team met for the first time to plan the preparations that will take place in the following months.

This spring, momentum is building for the 2027 World Scout Jamboree preparations. Less than eight months ago, ZHP – a WOSM member organization in Poland – established the Jamboree Management Team, primarily composed of volunteers. Since then, the JMT has crafted the Jamboree Delivery Plan’s guiding principles and outlined the Jamboree Planning Team’s departmental structure.

Initial open calls inviting ZHP members and other WOSM member organizations to join the effort have been published. Consequently, volunteers responsible for the Programme, Health, Communication, HR, Safe from Harm, and Technical Support assembled in Gdańsk for the very first time.

Besides getting acquainted, the team visited Sobieszewo Island – the World Scout Jamboree site – to appreciate the springtime beauty of nature and understand the islanders’ everyday life and challenges.

Sobieszewo Island, a district of Gdańsk, the Jamboree’s host city, has been the focus of a Social Development Programme since 2015, implemented by the Municipality in partnership with ZHP to strengthen civil society.

In addition to the Jamboree Planning Team meeting, the Jamboree Management Team held a working session. Crucial discussions involved establishing Safe from Harm policies and procedures for the preparatory phase and brainstorming the Jamboree’s objectives as a sustainable event.

The weekend concluded with the first meeting of the Organising Committee’s Foundation Council. Established under a contract between ZHP and WOSM, the Organising Committee serves as the Jamboree’s legal entity, operating in accordance with WOSM’s Constitution and Guidelines. The Foundation Council is a controlling and advisory body.

While the Jamboree team physically meets twice a year, they work remotely between gatherings.

Additional invitations to join the team will be released soon, along with opportunities for the wider community to share their ideas for the World Scout Jamboree 2027. The primary focus now shifts to the XXV World Scout Jamboree in South Korea, where the WOSM Flag will be symbolically passed on to Poland at the event’s closing ceremony.
