World Scout Jamboree

In Summer 2023, more than 40,000 Scouts from all over the world will gather in Korea for the 25th World Scout Jamboree.

The World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) is a World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) event. It happens every four years, each time hosted by a different country. We're so proud that thousands of UK young people aged 14 to 17 and their leaders will travel to South Korea.

The theme of the Jamboree is "Draw your Dream", representing our willingness to accept young people's ideas and opinions, and create an opportunity for them to make their Jamboree dreams come true. "Draw your Dream!" expresses the desire for members of the Scout Movement to transform the 25th World Scout Jamboree into their own festival and grow their dreams through the event.

Unit 11 - Derbyshire Deer
Deer

Deer are iconic creatures of Derbyshire and a common sight in our countryside and National Park.

The deer is a representation of being in harmony with nature. Gently taking what you need and respectfully leaving nature intact, this can be a lesson for everyone and one we are proud to follow in scouting. Deers' herd mentality has also lent to the belief that deer are community oriented, making sure that no one is left behind while they are on the move, an essential element of our journey to Korea.

They are also a sacred animal with deep roots in Korean Taoism (an ancient tradition of philosophy and religious belief).

Unit 12 - Derbyshire Orideul
Deer

Unit 12 badge fuses traditional and modern elements of Derbyshire, UK and Korea. Incorporating UK and South Korean flag colours, and Obangsaek (traditional colour spectrum). The badge shape complements Korean concepts of Taeguk (Yin and Yang).

The Duck theme comes from the Derbyshire greeting "Ay Up Me Duck". Adding a Korean spin this evolved to Orideul (Ducks in Korean). Duck singular, "Ori", aligns with our traditional Scouting chant: Oggy,Oggy,Oggy or Ori, Ori, Ori ..Quack,Quack, Quack.

Further, for Koreans, ducks are symbolic of peace, love, good luck and plentiful offspring
