Product Description

This is the third event in a JCI Malta series called “Change Politics”, where we want to hold healthy, engaging and honest discussions on politics, with the viewpoint that change is possible.


Over the year JCI Malta has worked on projects that outlined the importance of understanding why we should vote, how we decide who to vote for, and educating upcoming young politicians to enter the political foray with the right mindset – to improve Malta.

As an apolitical organisation, we believe it is our duty and our responsibility to help young people develop critical and analytical thinking. It is also our responsibility to guide young future leaders who wish to enter politics with a mindset that steers away from corrupt practices and nepotism, but that instead focuses on making Malta sustainable, that treats humanity with dignity, and one that puts the country and its people before themselves.


Women in politics – Shifting the patriarchal mentality will be tackling the political scene when it comes to women’s space in politics and the related topic of gender quotas. Believing in the need for open and honest discussion, our event will create a proper platform to discuss this topic. The moderated debate will comprise various speakers whose lives have touched politics and who have opinions, thoughts, and advice to share with the audience, specifically on this hot topic. All those in attendance will also get the opportunity to join in the discussion, pass along their ideas and thoughts and simply look at ways in which we can truly impact and change the local political scene. Covid-19 permitting, the event will be followed by a short and informal networking session for all attendees alike.
