On 27 September 2022, the Leadership of Związek Harcerstwa Polskiego appointed the Organising Committee for the 26th World Scout Jamboree.
The preparation process for this largest educational event in the world – in which over 50,000 scouts from more than 170 countries will participate – is divided into several stages.
The ZHP National Board entrusted the overall management of the World Scout Jamboree preparations to the Jamboree Management Team, which includes 10 ZHP volunteers (selected through a recruitment process), the ZHP Chief Commissioner, and the executive and financial directors of the Organising Committee.
The Jamboree Management Team has developed and agreed on two strategic documents required by the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) – the Jamboree Master Plan and the Jamboree Delivery Plan. Subsequently, the team has determined the organisational structure of the Jamboree Planning Team, and now leads the work of the Jamboree Planning Team. The JMT also prepares and submits reports and updates for the World Scout Committee and the World Scout Bureau.
The World Scout Jamboree, held every four years in different parts of the world, brings together thousands of scouts and guides to encourage young people to step out of their comfort zone and take part in important discussions. The Jamboree organized by ZHP will inspire and help young people develop. In 2027, we invite the entire Scout Movement to Gdańsk to grow together as individuals, generations, and as a Movement.
The Jamboree Planning Team serves as the operational core for the World Scout Jamboree 2027, consisting of international and intergenerational volunteers from WOSM Member Organisations, as well as external experts in various fields. As preparations progress, the JPT continues to expand its membership. In the upcoming months, additional open calls will be launched to further enhance the planning team’s capabilities.
