Objectives of Global Goals area in 2018


I. To educate and mobilize members to apply Global goal to their projects

II. To promote Global Goals projects from local chapters throughout the world




These 17 SDG are different from the 10 MDG as they are issues that every nation faces. These are not just issues for developing countries and are faced in even the most developed countries. To break down the 17 goals, the first 7 focus on social challenges. The next 5 are the social issues that need to be rectified in order to lift people out of poverty.  The next 3 focus on the environment. The final two are about partnerships and how the SDG can only be achieved and maintained if national and global partners work together for peaceful and inclusive societies.

In 2004, JCI made a resolution to advance the UNMDG together with the UN. Over the years, many projects and incentives were established at the national and local levels to contribute to the worldwide goals. Just prior to the UNGA in 2015, JCI held her annual JCI Global Partnership Summit in New York City. One of the resolutions was that JCI would adopt the SDG once they were adopted by UNGA. They also resolved that at the JCI World Congress in Kanazawa, Japan that there would be a discussion regarding the goals that are most relevant to each area.

At JCI World Congress, the Kanazawa Declaration was formed. The priorities for each area were discussed and decided.
