The European Know-How Transfer gives young active citizens from Europe the opportunity to get an insight into the European policy making process. The 60 dynamic young delegates from thirteen European countries are coming together in Brussels in the beginning of October to participate in the 10th European Know-How Transfer. They meet with experts from the Commission, Members of the European Parliament and staff members of international organizations like the United Nations Millennium Campaign, the United Nations Refugee Agency. Further, exchanges with Eurochambres, the Partnership between the European Commission and the Council of Europe in the field of youth and the Committee of Regions are on the agenda.

“We are grateful that two JCI members from Slovakia – David Nagy and Juraj Hostak – could join the program in Brussels and promote our organization’s interests to the European decision makers”, said Marián Meško, executive president.“By connecting European policy with local business and civil society, the program fosters the European integration process. We will be able to present the work we have been doing in our communities and reach out to high-level potential partners to expand our impact.”

JCI Europe is a leading European non-profit association of young active citizens present in 40 European countries with more than 30.000 members. Engaging in activities focused on sustainable development locally, and globally JCI Europe members take responsibility for their communities while improving themselves through leadership and action. We think critically about existing problems and find sustainable solutions, which we translate into projects in education, innovation, entrepreneurship and social responsibility. We believe that collaborative ownership of both challenges and solutions by government, economy and civil society will produce long-term impact.
