What is Jamboree-On-The-Internet (JOTI)?

JOTI is an annual event in which Scouts and Guides from all corners of the world connect with each other through the internet. Digital signals carry their voices, pictures and messages all around the world. Connecting virtually with young people from other countries gives a feeling of the worldwide fellowship that scouting is.

When is it?

JOTI 2021 starts at 00:00 h local time on 16 October and runs up to 23:59 h local time on 17 October. During this time, the internet will be buzzing with communication between Scouts and Guides from different countries.

How to take part?

To take part in Jamboree-On-The-Internet and experience the excitement of connecting virtually with peers across the globe, you only need an internet connection and a computer or smartphone.

Most Scout Associations have appointed a National JOTA-JOTI Coordinator (NJC), who co-ordinates activities for the Association. Where no NJC exists, the International Commissioner is the point of contact.

How to proceed?

  1. Familiarise yourself with the programme ahead of time, to see, which activities you will find interesting.
  2. During the JOTI weekend, take part in the activities, tune in to the live shows or meet fellow Scouts on our different channels.

Yes, it is that simple!
