Your National JOTA-JOTI Coordinator

A new, completely updated  list has been published with one National JOTA-JOTI Coordinator (NJC) per country. He or she is the contact person that can help you prepare the next JOTA-JOTI for your group and has all the latest information. The NJC may refer you to a specialist if needed.

If your country is not listed, please contact the International Commissioner of your Scout Association for further details of JOTA-JOTI.

You can find your NJC in the list here.

2015 JOTA-JOTI Theme

The 2015 JOTA-JOTI theme is “The Earth is Yours.” The focus 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.

You can find more about the theme at 2015 Theme – The Earth is Yours.

Now that the theme is announced, can the 2015 JOTA-JOTI logo contest be far behind?

The World JOTAJOTI Team met at the World Scout Bureau office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 10 and 11 February 2015 to set the course for this years event.

Lots of new ideas were generated together with the WSB staff.  The team identified three focal points for this Year: the registration tooling, games content and National support. Details will follow soon, so stay tuned.
