23. verdenskonferanse i WOSM
|Dato||12.–17. august 1971 |
23. verdenskonferanse i WOSM
Delegater og deltagerland
Det var 400 deltakere fra 71 ulike land på denne 23. verdenskonferansen i WOSM.
Protest mot giganteri Jamboreene var frem mot 60-tallet blitt forholdsvis store arrangementer, mye show og lite preg av å være speiderarrangementer. Derfor drøftet de nordiske landene på WOSMs 20. verdenskonferanse i 1965 muligheten for å arrangere en jamboree i Norden. Dette var første (og til nå eneste) gang at jamboreen var et samarbeid mellom flere ulike nasjoner. I 1971 besluttet WOSMs 23. verdenskonferanse i Tokyo at den 14. verdensjamboreen i 1975 skulle være på Lillehammer.
