58th JOTA and 19th JOTI Events 2015
Jamboree On The Air – Jamboree On The Internet (JOTA-JOTI) is an official international event of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM). JOTA-JOTI is a youth programme event intended for young people in Scouting of all ages.
Scouts from all over the world communicate over the Air (amateur radio) and the Internet using any technology locally available. There are lots of different ways to communicate, including text-based chat, voice chat, video chat, emails, blogs, and social media networks.
The purpose of JOTA-JOTI is to enable and encourage Scouts around the world to communicate with one another by means of amateur radio and the internet, providing a fun and educational Scouting experience and promoting their sense of belonging to a worldwide Scout Movement.
JOTA/JOTI usually takes place in the the 3rd weekend in October. This year’s JOTA-JOTI 2015 will take place over the weekend 16th to 18th October. It is for each JOTA-JOTI location to decide when during the weekend they will be operational.
