United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) officially launched by Scouts in Hsinchu!
2019 Jamboree-on-the-Air& Jamboree On The Internet (JOTA & JOTI) will be warmly held at Dongmen Elementary School Hsinchu City in the morning of October 20th, 2019. The organizer, Hsinchu Sunfun Scout Group said that in addition to greetings with scouts around the world through internet this year, they will combine the Republic of China Messenger of Peace (MoP) project and incorporate the United Nation SDGs activities. A series of events will begin in the morning and end in the afternoon on that day. In addition to scouts participants, other NGO partners are also invited to assist this activity. We estimated there will be more than 200 scouts and partners involved in this event.
This event consists of six modules. Five of these are the five SDGs goals. They are: SDG 1 End poverty in all its forms everywhere; SDG 2 End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture; SDG 3 Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages; SDG 5 Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls; SDG 6 Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. The event is designed with module activities. Through these module activities, educational promotion, storytelling, and images/videos presentation, participants will be guided and inspired to discuss and share their suggestions and experiences. Finally, through the game and interactions in these activities, we expect participants can achieve their goals by taking practical actions.
The ultimate goal of SDGs is to not only achieve sustainable development but also allow participants to understand the changes and challenges faced by the land, society and environment which they live in through the SDG activity design and guidance. It also echoes the spirit of MoP and facilitates real actions to influence others and society through the changes in each one’s self-awareness. SDGs make the world a better place.
SDGs The Spirit of Scouts starts with me!
