Join us for a weekend filled with inspiration, networking, teamwork and traditions in the heart of Malmö!

Mårtens Afton (The Feast of Sain Martin) is a tradition celebrated in November, often with a Gåsablot. In the past, this event was celebrated all over Sweden. Today it´s more of a Skåne (south part of Sweden)-tradition and we love to invite jaycees from all over the world to join us celebrate this!

The theme for this year’s Gåsablot weekend on November 11-13 is Collaboration across borders.

Preliminary program (subject to minor changes and updates):

Friday evening: Get together and meet new friends
A relaxed evening filled with traditional Swedish ”fredagsmys”. Start approx. 6.30 pm – more info to come.

Saturday morning: Get inspired to act!
This year, we combine the theme for the Gåsablot weekend – ”collaboration across borders” – with this year’s JCI theme – ”just act”. Malmö and the Öresund region provide many good examples of collaboration across borders (may it be national, cultural, or socioeconomic ones). Before lunch, we let ourselves get inspired by some amazing people who have created great initiatives to build bridges across different types of borders. After refuelling our bodies it’s time to play our way to creative solutions, and in true JCI spirit, we will not let you out of the room until we also have discussed the actions necessary to reach our goals!

Saturday evening: Enjoy the traditional goose dinner!
At a traditional Gåsablot, black goose giblet soup is served as a appetizer, goose with potatoes and gravy as the main course together with red cabbage and prunes, and applepie for dessert. This menue is only served this time of the year and is something that many restaurants in Skåne is particularly proud of. And rightly so!

Since we this year also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the JCI Malmö Gåsablot, this will be an extra festive evening with many nice surprises.

We start by drinking a glass of sparkling wine together at 18:30, before we sit down to enjoy the dinnner at 19:00.

Dress code: Black Tie Optional
