A total of thirty-one Scout Leaders across Asia met in South Korea for the APR Seminar on Disaster Management to address and to identify the best preventive methods in disaster management, and to equip each National Scout Organization on how to best prepare for, response to and recover from disasters.

The participating Scout Leaders met on 21-25 June 2018. They came from 13 National Scout Organizations in the Asia-Pacific Region, all of which are responsible for disaster management and emergency services in their respective NSOs. Participating countries were Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

In his message, Dr. Hahm Jong Han, President of the Korea Scout Association called on Scouts and Scout Leaders to be more actively involved in their communities.

“The Korea Scout Association is very much elated to host the APR Seminar on Disaster Management. In recent history, we have seen that more and more Scouts are actively responding to natural calamities and disasters. Thus, it behoves us to train and to equip them with the technical knowledge about emergency response,” he stated further.

The venue of the seminar was at Jeollabuk-do Province, the same place where the 25th World Scout Jamboree will be held in 2023. It will be hosted by the Korea Scout Association.
