Even at the Jamboree in Japan in 2015,
there was a similar thing at the Jamboree held in Japan eight years ago. The 23rd Jamboree was held in Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan from July 28 to August 8, 2015. More than 33,000 Scouts and leaders from more than 150 countries participated. Some 78,000 tourists also visited. This means that a total of 100,000 people visited during the Jamboree in Japan alone.
Even at that time, ‘steamy heat’ was a big problem. Patients complained of heat stroke and dehydration. Patients had to be moved to on-site medical facilities. At that time, the daytime temperature in Japan was 35 to 40 degrees. Humidity soared to 80%. In terms of temperature and humidity, the Jamboree was close to a ‘survival game’ even at this time. The situation at the Saemangeum Jamboree is also similar to the Yamaguchi Jamboree in Japan.
According to the Jeonju Meteorological Office, the highest daytime temperature in the Buan area, where Saemangeum is located, recorded 34.5 degrees on the first day of the Jamboree. The next day was 33.8 degrees, and the third day was 35 degrees. The heatwave continued with an average of 34 degrees on the three days of the competition. Around 9:00 p.m. during the opening ceremony, the temperature in Buan was 27.5 degrees Celsius. With tens of thousands of people in one place, the heat must have been much worse for the participants. Moreover, since the Jamboree venue itself is by the sea, the humidity is over 70%. It is an unfavorable environment inevitably causing fever patients.
I need to nail the tent… Controversy over muddy
water A scene of a scout submerged in water and pitching a tent on plastic pallets. In this competition, they suffered from the heat and had to prepare for flooding. In the Saemangeum reclaimed land, water must drain well, but this did not work well, so the campsite turned into a muddy puddle. To set up a tent, you have to drive a large nail into the ground, but it is said that it is about to be pulled out quickly.
Saemangeum is a reclaimed land created by메이저사이트 filling in the coastal waters of Gunsan, Gimje, and Buan in Jeollabuk-do. Construction began in 1991 during the Roh Tae-woo administration and was completed in April 2010. The site where the Jamboree was held this time was a new reclaimed land that was reclaimed from February 2020 to December 2022. In particular, the campground is a place that was created as agricultural land from the beginning.
This part contrasts with the Yamaguchi Jamboree in Japan. The Yamaguchi event site is also reclaimed land like Saemangeum. Since the early 2000s, large-scale events such as the National Sports Festival have been held, and it has been developed as a place where ‘life’ rather than ‘survival’ is possible with various facilities. If you go through this process, even if you can’t do anything about the heat, you can at least reduce the risk of flooding. Eight years ago, the Yamaguchi Jamboree in Japan warned of the heat at the Saemangeum Jamboree and even suggested that the problem of inundation in reclaimed land is important.
10 trillion economic effect?… ‘Well’,
concerns about ‘steamy heat’ and muddy water were overlooked, and the economic effect was inflated. At the time of hosting the Jamboree, Jeollabuk-do advertised that it would give an economic effect of 9,801.6 billion won nationally and 5,531.8 billion won to Jeollabuk-do, including production inducement and added value. Is this really possible?
The cost of this tournament was 108.2 billion won. Excluding the participation fee of 40.2 billion won, the budget was 68 billion won. Jeollabuk-do decided to share 39.8 billion won and the central government 28.2 billion won. It is questionable how much of an economic impact teenagers can create by pitching tents and camping. It seems difficult to expect an effect of more than 10 trillion won even if ‘intangible value’, which has been frequently discussed in previous international competitions, is put in as much as possible. Rather than economic effects from the beginning, it would be better to attach great importance to the fact that an international event for young people that cannot be measured with money was held. The word
‘Jamboree’ is a Native American language. It is said that the word SHIVAREE , which means ‘joyful feast’ or ‘joyful play’, was changed and spread. Literally, it should be a ‘party’ and ‘play’, not a ‘survival game’. It is far, far away from this Jamboree, which suffers from ‘steamy heat’ and muddy water.
