Team size: to be determined in the course of the work
The Programme Department will create a timetable for the team’s work and plan the programme framework for the Jamboree 2027, based on the programme proposal prepared as part of the ZHP Candidacy presented at the 2021 World Scout Conference.

The Department will prepare a detailed educational programme for the event, a programme on and off the Jamboree site, and a programme to be delivered at leisure.
As the Co-lead of the Scouting Spirit Unit responsible for the Solidarity Badge for the World Scout Jamboree, the volunteer will play a crucial role in both the planning and execution stages of the project.
During the planning phase, the volunteer will develop comprehensive and exciting badge requirements and events enabling participants to earn this badge. This might include activities such as meetings with inspiring people involved in “Solidarność” movement and more contemporary examples of the ‘conquer evil with good’ idea and activities that will stimulate participants to think about who needs their solidarity today. The co-lead would work closely with other team members to ensure the activities are suitable for participants’ age and skill levels and align with the overall objectives of the Jamboree. If needed, he or she would also liaise with suppliers to procure necessary equipment and materials and cooperate with allies (social actors, public institutions) to provide participants with learning opportunities. The co-lead would also coordinate with safety personnel to establish emergency response procedures.
The co-lead would also have a role in training volunteers to assist in delivering the Solidarity Badge programme, ensuring they understand their roles, the safety procedures, and the specifics of the activities they’ll be leading.
During the execution phase, the volunteer will oversee the operation of the Solidarity Badge. The co-lead will manage the programme staff, ensure safety regulations are adhered to, solve any issues that arise, and ensure that the participants are having an enjoyable and educational experience.
The role of the Co-lead of the Scouting Spirit Unit involves also the responsibility for the symbolic framework of the Jamboree.
