JCI Global Partnership Summit
At the 2013 JCI Global Partnership Summit, the young active citizens of JCI will unite with leaders of business, government and civil society to address the critical challenges of our times and how the coordinated efforts of these three sectors can lead the way to sustainable global change through the framework of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. 2010 was a milestone year as the UN MDGs accelerate toward their 2015 deadline, and coordinated action among the key segments of society has never been more crucial.
JCI will lead the initiative by bringing together its key partners – the United Nations, UN Global Compact, UN Foundation and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) – to drive the conversation and redefine, enhance and promote collaboration among these important global players. The hands of government are often tied when faced with global challenges. Corporations, likewise, cannot take the lead to find solutions for fear of appearing self-serving in pursuit of profit.
