It's nearly time for Scouting Radio to report on another World Scout Jamboree! Yes this will be our 3rd World Jamboree to report on since we began our station in 2005!

The 23rd World Scout Jamboree will be held in Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi, Japan. Japan is an island country in the Pacific Ocean, where beautiful nature and modern cities coexist. You can find rich traditional culture as well as modern culture such as animation in Japan. Yamaguchi is located in the western part of Japan facing the calm Seto Inland Sea. It exemplifies many aspects of contemporary Japan such as modern city, beautiful nature, traditional performing arts, old buildings as well as modern industries.

Kirara-hama is a reclaimed land in Yamaguchi -City, which is located in the western part of Honshu, extending about 1 km from north to south and  3 km from east to west (286 ha), and is equipped with developed facilities and parks. Kirara-hama was the site for Japan Expo Yamaguchi in 2001.

About the Theme

“WA: a Spirit of Unity” is the theme for the Jamboree. The Kanji Character “和” (WA) embraces many meanings such as unity, harmony, cooperation,friendship and peace. WA also represents Japan and its culture

Dates
From Tuesday, 28 July To Saturday, 8 August 2015

The Programme

Global Development Village(GDV)

GDV will be an on-site module programme, which tries to raise awareness of global issues such as peace, the environment, development, human rights and health among participants. As the 23WSJ will be held in Japan, GDV will focus on disaster mitigation. We will ask for active involvement of the UN agencies, NGOs and NPOs. GDV programme will be distributed to the world for pre-event materials, as well as being part of the Join-in-Jamboree programme.

Exploring Nature

A full day module programme that will foster better understanding of the surrounding nature will also bring appreciation to the environment. This programme will be held in Yamaguchi City where the Kirara-hama is.

Cross Road of Culture (CRC)

CRC will be an activity to promote the exchange of cultures, and learn respect for the cultures amongst participants.

Also in the CRC programme, we will try to have a programme aimed at deepening the cultural understanding of Japan from traditional culture to pop culture among the participants.

City of Science (COS)

COS, which will be one-day programme in Kirara-hama, will deepen the understanding of advances in science and technology and the benefits and problems associated with science. This programme provides a venue for learning about the development of fuel cells and other energy sources for the future, ecological problems, and robotics and automotive technologies.

Water Activities

Water activities such as sailing, wind surfing, snorkeling, rafting and fishing will be carried out at lakes, rivers or the nearby coast.
