JOTA-JOTI is the world’s largest digital Scout event taking place online and over the air. The educational event brings together more than 2 million Scouts every year in October for a weekend of Scouting and friendship. Young people can learn about communications technology and connect with fellow Scouts from over 171 countries.

Fun for everyone

JOTA-JOTI is about the 21st-century skills you can learn in Scouting and the values of global citizenship.
