What JCI ECM Is All About
The JCI European Capitals Meeting (JCI ECM) is an informal annual 3-4 day conference for Members and Senators in the JCI Chapters in the European Capitals. The event will take place on 2nd May to 5th May 2019 in magnificent London, United Kingdom.
For those who are new to ECM, the meeting focuses on Learning, Networking, Cultural Exchange, Inspiration with fellow Capital City Chapters and of course the opportunity to explore the City's many iconic places, Galleries, a visit to the pub, a stroll along the banks of the Thames or uncovering the City's best kept secrets at your own pace.
Typically, the meeting often consists of a combination of Seminars, Workshops, Sightseeing, Culture, Dinners and other Social evenings in the trendy London spots.
As the ECM is not an official JCI conference, the host city has a lot of freedom in designing the programme.The theme is "LOVE LIFE LIVE WELL" which focuses on SDG #3. We at JCI Greenwich are working with the Lord Mayor's Office to #Endthestigma of Mental Health which is such a huge topical issue. Therefore as Conference Director who is committed to changing attitudes towards Mental Health in the City, I feel it's something that our fellow Chapters in the European Capitals can help destigimatise by Creating visible support, showing, demonstrating and encouraging people to share their story. TOGETHER WE CAN #Endthestigma
The ECM was held for the first time in 1993 in Berlin, and has been held annually ever since. Other host cities have been Amsterdam, Ankara, Belgrade, Bern, Brussels, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, London, Luxembourg, Oslo, Paris, Stockholm, Tallinn, Vilnius, Moldova and Warsaw.
Please remember whatever the decision with BREXIT we remain open for business with our JCI European counterparts as usual.
So please do get in touch if you would like to attend. The ECM is an excellent preparation for the European Conference which will be in Lyon, France.
We at JCI Greenwich, JCI London and JCI UK look forward to welcoming our European friends to London in 2019.
