2013 JCI World Congress Report
From November 4-9, more than 3,000 delegates from 104 countries united in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to celebrate local and global impact and make important decisions about the future of JCI.
During their dynamic week in Rio de Janeiro, World Congress delegates participated in exciting events including the JCI Morning Shows, Spotlight JCI, the JCI Active Citizen FrameWorkshop, the first ever JCI Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World (TOYP) Workshop: Collaborating for Impact and a wide variety of workshops and forums with inspiring guest speakers. This year, the new JCI Awards Ceremony featuring the 2013 JCI TOYP Honorees proved to be a great success celebrating positive change all together on one dazzling evening.
Delegates also made significant decisions about the future of JCI at this year’s highly anticipated General Assemblies. Each Congress attendee had the exciting responsibility to make some strong decisions about the future of JCI. One of these major decisions was the approval of the 2014-2018 JCI Strategic Plan. After its approval, delegates, partners and friends also participated in the JCI Strategic Planning Forum. There they discussed goals and actions steps for each of the five strategies, Impact, Motivate, Invest, Collaborate and Connect and learned more about how to implement these strategies on the local level. The event culminated in the adoption of the 2014 JCI Plan of Action, the election of the 2014 JCI Board of Directors under the leadership of 2014 JCI President- elect Shine Bhaskaran and the official handover of the role of JCI Secretary General from current Secretary General Edson A. Kodama of JCI Brazil to incoming Secretary General Dennis Cunanan of JCI Philippines. JCI members and friends left the World Congress with a renewed motivation for creating sustainable impact as JCI launches into a better, brighter future.
