Jamboree21 – The Swedish Jamboree Experience

 

Next summer, the Guides and Scouts of Sweden organise a national Jamboree, Jamboree21, in the south of Sweden. July 31 – August 7 we will create a new world of friendship and adventure. A sustainable world where thousands of scouts will meet and together fulfil their dreams and ambitions.

We are happy to invite scout groups from all over the world to join us in creating this world. To share, and contribute to, a fantastic jamboree experience.

What is a Swedish Jamboree?

A Swedish National jamboree gathers approximately 10-15 000 participants and are held every fourth year. The Swedish jamborees are big events, but still with the feeling of being close to nature. They are the perfect mix of a social urban society and natural outdoor life. A place of friendship and Swedish fika. Simply scouting at its best!

At a jamboree, we leave all prejudice and conflicts behind and step into a world of understanding and cooperation. We open our minds to create new solutions and new ways to achieve a positive change in our lives, in our society and in the world. Together.

The Jamboree21 theme

The theme for Jamboree21 is sustainability, defined by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The jamboree will be an exciting journey where the participants can explore their own ways to make the world a better place. Sustainability will be a theme affecting everything we do, both what we do and how we do it. Together we strive towards making the first climate positive jamboree ever.
