The YAMG made a Patrol and we completed all the tasks of the Hwarang Award 2010 which was given by the Korea Scout Association. The YAMG members; me, Hafiz, Benz and Ari now hold the Hwarang Award.
The IST was made up of Scouters and volunteers from India, Malaysia, Singapore, Brazil, Taiwan, Korea, Maldives, Indonesia and Thailand.
The Youth Scout Environment forum during the Jamboree was facilitated and run by me and Benz since Ari was in charge of the Internet Jamboree and Hafiz was handling the APR Village the two of us were left to run the Forum.The forum went on great as the participants divided into three groups and each group taking part in outdoor observations making evaluations and preparing presentations based on their findings. Scouts concentrated on waste management, disposal, recycling, re-using and also general cleanliness.
