As the hosts of the Jamboree, we are committed to implementing environmentally-friendly actions to minimize the negative impact our event organization will have on the environment.
We view ecology as one of the most important aspects of our educational program and as a guiding principle in the preparation and organization of the Jamboree and its representation. Ensuring the consistency of our words and actions is a priority for us. Sustainable development will be a crucial part of our educational program and awareness-raising activities, with “Protect the Earth” as one of our program modules.
Here are some ways we plan to reduce the Jamboree’s negative impact on the environment:
- The 2027 Jamboree will adhere to the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) guidelines for organizing sustainable events and will be compliant with the International Standard for Sustainable Events (ISO 20121:2012).
- Site reclamation for the Jamboree area is secured in the agreement with the Host City.
- Carbon dioxide (CO2) compensation through participant actions before and during the Jamboree.
- Promoting a climate-friendly diet (planetary diet according to the EAT-Lancet report).
- Waste segregation for recyclable and reusable materials.
- Use of reusable materials.
- Sourcing the majority of energy from renewable sources.
- Reducing food waste (collecting uneaten food after the Jamboree and distributing it to those in need).
- Hybrid and electric vehicles and buses to reduce CO2 emissions.
By implementing these measures, we aim to create a more sustainable and environmentally responsible Jamboree, showcasing our commitment to preserving the Earth for future generations.
