Facilitator(s): JCI Rostock, Germany
Every JCI European Conference serves as a platform for international exchange. This platform allows our members to make new friends and meet old ones who they will otherwise probably not see over the course of the year. The 2021 JCI European Conference will take place on a cruise ship and is therefore ideally suited to maximize all possibilities to create “PartnerShips for our Future”.
Because very few hotels in Europe can provide the required number of rooms, attending amazing conferences in amazing cities requires conference participants to split up between many different accommodations and to switch locations.
To charter a cruise ship on an exclusive basis solves this challenge: JCI Europe will be provided a “hotel” with 1,035 rooms for up to 2,566 people for the entire duration of the conference, not to mention a huge theater, various restaurants and bars, many different ways to work out, and a number of other facilities.
Within the family atmosphere of a cruise ship, diverse young people from all over Europe can create even more sustainable impact. Of course this “hotel” will not stay in port! According to the specific route chosen, we will be able to visit three foreign ports: Gothenborg, Oslo and Copenhagen. While members of the regional JCI chapters will be leading tours of their respective city and region for many of the participants, the program on board continues. Delegates will be able to attend the General Assembly without having to take part in the cruise – but most will choose to set sail!
The Conference Organizing Committee is confident it can offer the entire cruise, including the conference program, at great value and very attractive pricing. Every participant will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience, an event that may never be repeated again – at an all inclusive price.
