The Jamboree’s objective is to promote the National Organization of the Romanian Scouts (NORS) as an educative, modern, opened, unitary and relevant movement for the young people that are part of it and for today’s Romanian society.

  • To promote the unity of NORS’ identity (aim, vision, method) by understanding the value of the experience and local practices exchange;
  • To offer young people the possibility to be involved in activities based on the Scouting Method as an alternative to formal education and to define the position of Scouting within the context of non-formal education in Romania;
  • To support the development of NORS through the improvement of local, group and organizational performance by: increasing the number of youth involved within the movement; increasing the impact Scouting has in different communities; increasing our Organization’s ability to respond to societal changes.
  • To offer young persons the opportunity to understand the relevance of the European fundamental set of rights and values, along with their connection with the Scouting values and offer them the possibilty to explore methods and initiatives meant to develop an equitable society;
  • To allow youth to acquire knowledge and develop attitudes that will encourage sustainable development, that will allow them to live practical activities that will also be relevant within their communities, regarding the social, economic and ecological areas.
