Caribbean Jamboree 2014

Caribbean Jamboree 2014

CORE N.V. was one of the many participants during the 15th Caribbean Jamboree held on Curaçao, during the third week of July in 2014. Scouting Antiano held a Global Development Village during this week in which global issues were dealt with. CORE N.V. alongside organizations like Curaçao Cares, Lionfish Elimination Team Curaçao and Just Neva were present to help educate the scouts on various subjects that are relevant in today's society. 

CORE N.V.'s interactive booth was designed to educate the scouts in media literacy (Mediawijsheid in Dutch). This topic was chosen due to the ever growing presence and influence of advertising media, news media and social media. CORE N.V. chose several ways to interact and thus educate the scouts. CORE N.V.'s representatives Ms. Jurinda Montroos, Ms. Vanessa Chong and Ms. Gisleney Elizabeth were present during the four days at the camping site at Ronde Klip and held presentations with topics such as Social Media, Copyright, Gaming and Privacy. Furthermore CORE N.V. had a Media Literacy 'Ganzenbord' (a board game) and a photo booth for the entertainment of the scouts. 

We appreciate the opportunity given by Scouting Antiano to interact with the scouts and be able to educate the scouts on the effective use of (social) media.
