At the World Congress 2015 (Kanazawa), JCI representatives from 120 countries signed the Kanazawa declaration and spoke about our organization’s commitment to the implementation and support of the UN SDGs.
What we are seeing now is that these Global Goals have penetrated internationally into the DNA of our organization. Because we cannot stay behind at the Belgian level, JCI Belgium founds a SDG Ambassadors Team. Here, JCI members and candidates can contribute to the promotion and realization of SDGs.
About the SDG Ambassador Team
What are the plans for the team on the short-term?
- Help organizing the TOYP (Global Goal Awards) in Belgium in 2016 and 2017
- Promotion of the Global Goals in Belgium, development of a training / keynote for the benefit of local chapters
- Launch of the “Let’s do it!” campaign in Belgium, culminating in the organization of the World Cleanup Day on 15 August, 2018 (new date!)
Will you be a member of the SDG Ambassadors Team?
To achieve our goals, we are looking for some enthusiastic team members who wish to collaborate on one or more of the points mentioned above.
Do you have organizational skills, you want to develop a training session, you are a crack of communication, budget management or relationship maintenance, and at the same time fascinated by the idea that, by collaborating globally around Global Goals, we can make life better at the global level? Then be welcome in our team!
What do we expect from you?
We expect a minimum commitment from our team members to attend meetings and undertake tasks. Count 2 meetings per month (Brussels region) and 1-2 hours per week.
You can commit to a particular task, or for a fixed period (eg 2017).
The language with which the team will work will be English.
