JOTA-JOTI is the largest Scouting event in the world with over 1 million Scouts participating across 150+ countries.
The event is held the third weekend of October – 20th, 21st & 22nd October 2017 – Celebrating 60 Years Connecting Scouts.
The Jamboree on the Air is an annual event in which half a million Scouts and Guides all over the world make contact with each other by means of amateur radio. Short-wave radio signals carry their voices to virtually any corner of the world.
The use of amateur radio means that many Scouts get the opportunity to discover the skills of wireless radio techniques and electronics. JOTA is also the only event that offers each individual Scout the opportunity to speak to other Scouts across the world.
JOT - Jamboree on the Internet connects Scouts across the world in a similar way to JOTA, but using the internet. Volunteer organisations like Scoutlink and Scoutnet provide the necessary technical support and server capacity.
