One-day off-site programme to Hiroshima will provide opportunity for all the participants to learn from the history of 1945. Participants will visit Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park including the museum.
Peace Memorial Ceremony
As 2015 is the 70th anniversary since the atomic bomb had been dropped, the Japanese Organising Committee is seeking the possibility for some representative Scouts – possibly one from each NSO – to attend the Peace Memorial Ceremony in Hiroshima.
Global Development Village (GDV)
GDV will be an on-site module programme, which tries to raise awareness over the global issues such as peace, environment, development, human rights and health among participants.
A full day module programme that will foster better understanding of the surrounding nature will also bring appreciation to the environment. This programme will be held in Yamaguchi City where the Kirara-hama is.
Cross Roads of Culture (CRC)
CRC will be an activity to promote exchange of cultures, and learn respect to the cultures of own and others.
Also in the CRC programme, there will be a programme aimed to deepen the cultural understanding of Japan from traditional to pop culture among the participants.
City of Science (COS)
COS, which will be one-day programme in Kirara-hama, will deepen understanding of advances in science and technology and the benefits and problems associated with science. This programme provides a venue for learning about the development of fuel cells and other energy sources of the future, ecological problems, and robotics and automotive technologies.
There will be a day for community services. Participants can compare their own community by seeing the other community. This programme would include practical implementation of the “Reaching Out” strategy in the local community. Participants will be able to experience real Japan by working with local people.
Water activities such as sailing, wind surfing, snorkelling, rafting and fishing will be carried out at lakes, rivers or the nearby coast.
We are hoping to have Home Hospitality immediately after the Jamboree to deepen understanding of the Japanese way of life and culture, and cultivate mutual understanding.
