The 2019 JCI European Conference was hosted in the bustling city of Lyon, France from 8-11 May. The theme for the 2019 JCI European Conference was “Commitment Revolution.” Recognizing that the future of Europe depends on the efforts of young leaders and entrepreneurs, participants were urged to make a firm commitment to furthering the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They took courses on effective communication and design thinking and discussed how to integrate the SDGs into a business model. With a focus on agility and innovation, delegates left the conference with a clear understanding of their responsibility: acting now to create sustainable change.
Those who attended the 2019 JCI European Conference enjoyed the sights of Lyon and connected with other delegates during special events like the Welcome Party, German/Austrian/Swiss Night, Irish/Estonian Night and the JCI Awards Ceremony and Gala.
