What is the World Scout Jamboree?
Traffic Safety Activities to be held at the 24th WSJ:
Holding Hands Event
Scouts around the world will join hands to give a promise and commit to act, strengthening global forces against the number one cause of death for young people: road traffic crashes. A boy and a girl scout from each continent will join hands to form a circle and send a message for road peace against the war on the roads through working together in a “Spirit of Unity” so as to “STOP Road Crashes”. They will wear reflective vests over their uniform and sing a song we are preparing ΙΟΑS created especially for this event with the message “Peace on the Roads of the World”. Creating thus a global alliance for Safety and Courtesy on the Roads, as Roads to Future will save lives and make our world better.
As RSI “Panos Mylonas” we are proud partners to FIA for Road Safety issues.
