2016 JCI Global Partnership Summit Resolution

As we launch into the next 100 years of impact, JCI members worldwide have committed themselves to create positive change by taking grassroots action to advance the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. However, we understand that these goals can only be advanced through collaboration across all sectors of society.

Following the adoption of the Global Goals in 2015, JCI committed to end poverty, fix climate change and tackle inequalities. Developed by the voices of millions of people worldwide, the Global Goals represent the foundation from which young people can advance global development and create a more peaceful and prosperous world. 

As young active citizens dedicated to achieving sustainable impact and inspired by our collective determination to advance the 17 Global Goals by the 2030 target deadline, we commit to:

  1. Promote the Global Goals within our Local Organizations and encourage our National Organizations to install a Global Goals Committee or Director
  2. Engage and collaborate with local partners to advance the Global Goals by incorporating the goals in our projects and events
  3. Utilize the JCI Active Citizen Framework and the JCI Project Management System to identify and address our communities’ greatest needs in relation to the Global Goals, and
  4. Amplify the positive change we create at the local level through media and other relevant platforms in our communities.

As young active citizens, we look beyond our own interests, accept different perspectives and are motivated to see the problems of the world not as challenges but as opportunities. Moving forward, we will go beyond creating awareness of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development by taking responsibility and taking action to advance the goals to create a better and more peaceful world. 

Dated on the 28th day of July 2016 in New York City, United States of America.
