DRAW YOUR DREAM!
“Draw your Dream!” expresses the desire of the members of the Scout Movement to transform the 25th World Scout Jamboree into their own festival and to grow their dreams through the event. SaeManGeum will be shaped into a spacious recreational ground, giving young Scouts from around the world an opportunity to purse their hopes and dreams throughout the Jamboree.
The logo for the 25th World Scout Jamboree symbolises the gathering of scouts from around the world who will come together under one tent in Korea to enjoy the jamboree experience. The logo is designed in the shape of traditional Korean tiled roof(Giwa-jibung) and tents, and embodies the spirits of joyful festivals that take place in Korea.
