20th October sees the start of the annual Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) / Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI) event, a three day event enabling all members of the Scout movement across the world to safely communicate and share experiences.
1st Liss have been involved in this event for a number of years and through JOTI we have been able to speak to Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Leaders from all over the world. We are running the event over two nights this year, with the first as a set up and test with the Scouts, followed by an all day online marathon for Cubs and Beavers. Scouts and Explorers take over on Saturday evening and have the opportunity to go through the night talking to people in all time zones via secure webchat, audio and video.
The whole event is thoroughly monitored and moderated enabling a safe, secure environment for a truly global event. The event is available to all 1st Liss Members via Online Scout Manager.
