We're only days away from the 2020 JOTA-JOTI (Jamboree on the Air and Jamboree on the Internet), the world's largest digital Scout event, which will take place 16–18 October 2020.
JOTA-JOTI is an annual event which allows millions of Scouts to connect online and on the air, to participate in fun and engaging programme of activities to learn about communications technology, international friendship, the values of global citizenship and how Scouts, together, can solve the most pressing challenges facing our planet.
Here's how BP Fellows can join in:
There will be six JOTA-JOTI Live two-hour shows over the course of the event, taking place every 12 hours and featuring interviews with Scouts around the world (including some of our Young BP Fellows!), good news stories and highlights from the other activities taking place across the JOTA-JOTI campsite!
These will be streamed via all the main WOSM channels so you can view these from your preferred platform: YouTube or Facebook or the JOTA-JOTI website.
