WOSM Statement from the 25th World Scout Jamboree
Today , the World Organization of the Scout Movement ( WOSM ) continued to work closely with the Korean Scout Association ( The Host ) and the Government of Korea to mitigate heat wave risks on Jamboree operations and participants .
We have been informed that the UK Contingent has decided to leave the Jamboree camp early, allowing the Scouts to continue their Jamboree experience in Seoul until they are scheduled to travel home.
WOSM today asked the Host to consider alternative options to end the event earlier than scheduled and support the participants until they depart for their home countries. The Host decided to go ahead with the event, assuring that they will do everything possible to address the issues caused by the heat wave by adding additional resources.
We continue to call on the host and the Korean government to honor their commitments to mobilize additional financial and human resources, and to make the health and safety of the participants their top priority.
