21st World Scout Jamboree: Youth Speak Out about Sexuality and HIV in the Community

From 25-07-2007 to 06-08-2007 (UK) 

21st World Scout Jamboree: Youth Speak Out about Sexuality and HIV in the Community

UNESCO launched a series of 16 workshops entitled Youth Speak out about Sexuality and HIV in the Community at the 21st World Scout Jamboree held from 27 July to 6 August 2007 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford in the United Kingdom.

This year’s Jamboree marked the centennial anniversary of the Scouting movement and brought together around 40,000 scouts from all over the world.

On this occasion, UNESCO’s workshops addressed HIV and AIDS education while highlighting related issues such as stigma, discrimination, gender relations and human rights through the use of arts and creativity.

Prior to the workshops, UNESCO conducted a two days “training of trainers” with scouting staff and volunteers, aimed at developing their ability to use theatre techniques as tools for awareness-raising on HIV and AIDS issues. Several trainees were actively involved in the animation of the sensitisation workshops.

This event was organised with the generous support of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
