Our roar is growing

We’ve appointed our UK Contingent Support Team, the volunteers who deliver specific projects like unit support, programme creation, photography, videography and logistics. This completes our UK Contingent Management Support Team, a diverse group of adults who will help create our World Scout Jamboree dream.  

Find out more and recap our journey to date in Liz’s blog.

Our tiger has a name…

We’re loving seeing our tiger appearing in materials across the UK and British Scouts Overseas promoting opportunities to take part in our unique and sustainable international adventure. As you’ve clearly welcomed our ‘friend’, it’s time we made some proper introductions.

Find out the tiger’s name and the young people who created it in Kester Sharpe’s blog.

Helping you to show your stripes

UK Contingent material on the Brand Centre

You are probably starting to think about local materials to promote your 25WSJ journey. The 25WSJ Brand Guidelines have now been added to the Brand Centre along with our logo. Just search “UK Contingent” in the centre.

Take time to understand the correct use so that our amazing brand, that was co-created by the UK Contingent Youth Shaped Team, has maximum impact. We have also consulted on how we should describe our host country so plenty in the guidelines for you.

…and please don’t be afraid to roar!

Dream: Review our brand guidelines and let your imagination go wild
