JOTI - 13th Jamboree On The Internet 17-18/10/2009    (10/13/2009)

The World Scout Jamboree On The Internet (JOTI) is an international Scout Meeting on the Internet which takes places every year on the third weekend of october. This is an official event of the World Organization of the Scout Movement. During that weekend, thousands of Scouts from all over the world meet and communicate with each other over the Internet, using any technologies locally available, from web browsers to e-mail, chat programs, microphones, scanners and digital cameras. Scoutgroups can combine this event with the Jamboree On The Air (JOTA), an event where Scouts can communicate with each other over radio amateur frequencies with the assistance of a local radio amateur crew. Most of the communication takes place over E-mail and in a chat network called IRC, the Internet Relay Chat. JOTI allows you to build friendships with Scouts in other countries and to find out more about their civil and scouting life. Often, these contacts last for years and build the base for upcoming group trips and entreprises. Since 1996, JOTI is an official WOSM event and has a permanent place on the Web Site of the World Scout Bureau.

If we've raised your interest, just get a few suggestions from our web site and participate in this year's JOTI. ----- Check out what places Legend Explorers spoke to over the weekend http://gmaps.kaeding.name/saved/LegendESU-JOTI2009
