The event will take place from 28th July to 8th August at Yamaguchi, Japan. The Greek mission, consist of selected RSI volunteers, members of the Greek Scout movement, Irish and Polish scouts will carry out road safety workshops and at the same time they will conduct a survey on youths attitudes and behaviors on road safety since road accidents cost the lives of more than 1,24 million people worldwide each year.

In continuation of the RSI’s “Panos Mylonas” successful actions during the last youth gatherings at Sweden 2011 (22nd World Scout Jamboree) and Canada 2013 (14thCanadian MOOT), the Institute will carry out experiential learning workshops also at this year Jamboree that is going to host more than 35.000 Scouts and Rankers 18-25 years old from 164 countries.

The event theme is “a Spirit of Unity” and promotes values like unity, harmony, cooperation, friendship and peace.
