2015 JOTA-JOTI Theme

The 2015 JOTA-JOTI theme is “The Earth is Yours.” The focus is on environmental responsibility. The Earth is Yours – so take good care of it. Wherever and whenever possible, act to minimize the environmental impact of your actions.

You can find more about the theme at 2015 Theme – The Earth is Yours.

Now that the theme is announced, can the 2015 JOTA-JOTI logo contest be far behind?

The World JOTAJOTI Team met at the World Scout Bureau office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 10 and 11 February 2015 to set the course for this years event.

Lots of new ideas were generated together with the WSB staff.  The team identified three focal points for this Year: the registration tooling, games content and National support. Details will follow soon, so stay tuned.

The World JOTAJOTI Team has just received the sad news that the founding father of the Jamboree On The Air (JOTA), Mr Leslie Mitchell, has gone home on 6 October 2014.

Les started of the JOTA in 1958, after launching the idea at the World Scout Jamboree a year earlier. The Jamboree had an Amateur Radio station on board for the very first time. (It has had one ever since).
