Our theme and vision: WeDO 2030!

All JCI members join their chapter for their own individual reasons. Some are focused on personal development or business networking, others join for helping their local community or for the international network. As expressed in the JCI mission, we all have one thing in common: each JCI member wants to create positive change. Whether it’s local, national or international. Each person’s contribution adds something to the many great projects we carry out within our chapters. Together, all those projects create JCI’s significant footprint of structural change throughout the world.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could enlarge our footprint by joining forces inside and outside JCI? The impact we could be able to generate if we unite all sectors of society would be enormous. For the 2017 JCI World Congress in the Netherlands we will work with government agencies, businesses, and local communities to create an innovative and challenging program. A program which provides everyone with the means to multiply his or her impact. Not only during this congress, but in their own country and within their own community. A program that of course also makes sure that everyone will have an unforgettable experience in the Netherlands.

Together, WE DO!



The 2017 JCI World Congress in the Netherlands will be an event people want to be part of; active members, senators, alumni, and even non members! Why? For the world class speakers, for the fantastic company visits, for the famous Dutch parties, and specifically for our WE DO program.

The WE DO program is a five-day program full of events centered around four program themes:

social equality
climate change

Participants choose one of these themes for the whole five days, or spend one day on one theme and the next day on another one. Each day will consist of keynotes, workshops, trainings, and company visits related to the four themes. At the end of each day, participants will have met new people, will have new insights and inspiration, and will have gathered more tools to create impact in their own community...  Read More


The Netherlands

At the 2017 JCI World Congress, we would like to show JCI members from around the world the Dutch Touch, the way our people and our institutions make the best of our country. From living together in major and minor cities, to using our natural resources like wind and gas.

Amsterdam has its canals and famous museums. Rotterdam has one of the largest ports in the world and stunning architectural buildings. The Hague houses the Peace Palace and the Dutch government.
