Message from JCI Kanazawa Local President Yuichi Tsuruyama:

Starting in 2016, the JCI Kanazawa Conference has been held each year in Japan, in the city of Kanazawa. Participants from National Organizations around the world meet to share their experiences of advancing the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development, and to encourage and motivate each other in these endeavors.

JCI Kanazawa will be hosting this conference for the final time in 2020, and we look forward to offering participants the opportunity to learn about the efforts being made around the world, and at an advanced level in Japan, to implement the UN SDGs. It will also offer participants the opportunity to explore the best ways to meet their shared target of achieving the UN Global Goals by 2030. Conference organizers have prepared content aimed at enabling participants to experience and consider a range of cross-border issues.
