What we do

Engaging in activities focused on sustainable development locally and globally, JCI members take responsibility for their communities. On the same time they empower themselves and improve leadership skills and expertise.

We believe that collaborative ownership between government, economy and civil society will produce sustainable solutions and global impact.

Active Citizen Framework:

This is a project management tool that JCI has developed. With this we want to ensure that projects are successfully conducted.
We encourage young people to take responsibility for local, national and global challenges and find targeted and sustainable solutions that benefit our communities and the world.

The Framework ensures a community-based, needs-focused approach, centers on grassroots action and results in sustainable positive change.
