In August 2019 we will create a city for four days only.

 

We built this city on Rock’n’Roll - and entrepreneurship!

For the first JA Global Alumni Conference we are creating the most inspiring location possible. The JA Village will be built around our three main topics innovation, communication and risk taking as well as the unifying spirit of Junior Achievement Alumni visiting from all over the world. It will be set up in Viennas renowed University of Economics (WU) and beautiful green gardens surrounding it. All of the main locations will be in a walking distance of 10-15 min.
