JCI European Capitals Meeting 2022
Time & Location
About the Event
JCI Amsterdam International is the host for JCI ECM 2022 and our focus is diversity and inclusion. With 180 different nationalities and 45% ethnic minorities, the population of Amsterdam is one of the most diverse in Europe. People of different ethnic origin, with a different socio-economic position / status and sexual orientation, people with and without religion live close together in neighbourhoods in which no group is the numerical majority anymore. Amsterdam has almost 1 million residents and 20% are expats. 50% of the Dutch residents are of non-Dutch descent. The local government’s goal is to focus the attention on what connects us, instead of our differences. Where people with different backgrounds work together, new insights emerge, which leads to innovation and creativity. That is why the municipality’ s policy is about inclusivity. About how we ensure that all ‘Amsterdammers’ can participate in the community, and that everybody has a feeling of belonging within the community. Because the more people participate, the stronger and more dynamic the city is.
See you in Amsterdam!
