Looking Ahead: The 2010 Global Partnership Summit

JCI unites representatives from business, government and civil society to discuss collaboration for change. The many critical challenges of our time pose a threat to individuals and businesses alike. At the 2010 JCI Global Partnership Summit from June 21 to 23, the young active citizens of JCI will address these challenges and discuss how businesses, governments and members of civil society can bring positive change by working together.

United We Stand
Alone, each entity encounters its own roadblocks to success and change. 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.

JCI believes that by working with leaders in civil society, the three sectors have the potential to overcome their own constraints. They can also combine their strengths to create wider positive change and financial success. 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 redefine, enhance and promote collaboration among these important global players.

Guided by the UN Millennium Development Goals
The JCI Global Partnership Summit will explore ways that active citizens in all society sectors can create positive change through the framework of the UN MDGs. Delegates will also determine how citizens can work both individually and collectively to enhance grassroots efforts to realize the objectives of the UN MDGs before the 2015 deadline.

Through this event, JCI hopes to increase awareness of the need for improved partnership among government, civil society and corporations to address issues of local and global concern. The Summit will also provide an environment to foster the growth of these partnerships. JCI is committed to strengthening the partnerships among JCI Local and National Organizations and local businesses, governments and international organizations to run projects to advance the UN MDGs.

Dining to Make a Difference
JCI will also host the 2010 JCI Nothing But Nets Commitment Gala Dinner to raise funds to purchase and distribute insecticide-treated bed nets to areas widely affected by malaria. The dinner will provide executives from the public, private and civil society sectors an opportunity to mingle and discuss synergies while donating to a very important cause.

Make plans now to attend the 2010 JCI Global Partnership Summit in New York this June. Registration will be open from April 1 to June 1. Learn more about the Summit, registration prices, accommodation and New York at the Summit website
