JCI World Congress

G E N E R A L A S S E M B LY

Amsterdam, Netherlands | 6 – 10 November To advance the world’s most pressing issues through the lens of the global development agenda, exchange dialogue with international thought leaders and connect with individuals from nearly 120 countries around the world, JCI’s active citizens, partners and friends once again united for the most-anticipated annual event of the year — the 2017 JCI World Congress — an event in the making since 2007. This year, World Congress delegates were provided with the unique opportunity to heavily focus their Congress activities on exploring four of the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development including Global Goals #4: Quality Education, #8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, #10: Reduced Inequalities and #13: Climate Action. With an innovative program that was strategically created to bring awareness and focus on sustainable development, participants engaged with all sectors of society through a variety of keynotes, workshops, company visits and community impact projects. One impactful addition to this year’s Congress program was the WeDo 2030! Festival, which included a full day of empowering keynotes, panel discussions and interactive activities covering the Global Goals. The highlight of not only the festival but the entire World Congress was the special visit and keynote by Nobel Peace Prize Winner, former UN Secretary-General and former JCI member Kofi Annan. The 2017 JCI World Congress united global citizens in a common purpose
