1991 - 17th World Jamboree - Soraksan National Park, South Korea
"Many Lands, One World" was the theme of the 17th World Jamboree, which brought together over 20'000 Scouts and Guides from more than 135 nations in beautiful Mount Sorak Park. Contingents of Scouts from all the former communist states in Central Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union took part in a Jamboree for the first time. The Scouts of Czechoslovakia and Hungary had been participating as members of the World Scout Movement since 1947. The World Jamboree started in bad weather with rain and flooding, which caused some problems. The jamboree site was only a few kilometres from the disputed border with North Korea and about 200 km, or a 6-hour drive, from Seoul, the South Korean capital. The first "Global Development Programme" was presented during this World Jamboree.
