2015 Theme

The Earth is Yours

The focus of the 2015 JOTA-JOTI theme is on environmental responsibility. The Earth is Yours – so take good care of it. Wherever and whenever possible, act to minimize the environmental impact of your actions.

This is consistent with the World Scout brand statement: Creating a Better World. As well as consistent with Lord Baden-Powell’s advice: Leave this world a little better than you found it.

This theme will be used to activate creative inspiration for the JOTA-JOTI logo contest and to drive many activities during JOTA-JOTI weekend – 16-18 October 2015. Among the potential activities will be JOTA-JOTI stations operating without tapping local electrical mains. Using batteries, windmills, and solar panels for electricity will be just some of the possibilities. Scouts will be encouraged to post stories, photos, and videos of their stations in action as they minimize their environmental impact, demonstrating that The Earth is Yours.
