23rd World Scout Jamboree in YAMAGUCHI Kirara-hama
What is the bulletin?
by Mari Nakano, Chairperson, 23rd World Scout Jamboree Management Team and Member, World Scout Committee
Dear Scout Friends, I am pleased to bring you the ﬁrst Bulletin of the 23rd World Scout Jamboree, which will be hosted in Japan in 2015. The theme of the Jamboree is “WA: a Spirit of Unity.” It represents the very essence of Japan, such as harmony and unity, and furthermore it represents Japan itself as well. Scouts gathered from all over the world will actively discuss and think about global issues such as peace, and reﬂect upon their lives through various programmes which will have prepared to encourage their personal development. Friendships fostered at the 23rd World Scout Jamboree will ﬂourish far into the future. As you are aware, Japan suffered a great loss from the Great East Japan Earthquake on 11th March 2011. With the heart-warming support that we have received from people all over the world, especially Scouts, the reconstruction effort have made great strides. I would like to express our sincerest gratitude for the support given to us, and assure you that we will be ready to welcome you all at the 23rd World Scout Jamboree.
During the next 3 years, we will be publishing Bulletins in order to provide National Scout Organizations (NSOs) and their contingents with information to prepare for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree. The Bulletins will be distributed through SCOUTPAK of the World Scout Bureau to all NSOs. In addition to the Bulletins, there will be other means of communication, the website being the main one (www.23wsj.jp).
