The Peace Conference of Youth [PCY] 2014 is not intended to be a closed debate. Ideas and proposals generated by the groups will be presented in an open discussion environment to discover the bestways to achieve “lasting peace on Earth”. It will be an environment to gauge opinions and make connections. The starting point for sustainable actions and problem-solving solutions is for young people to actually feel that the would can be changed by small actions taken by themselves. The theme of PCY 2014 is “Expanding region harmony from education”. We would like you to challenge yourselves to make a feasible Action Plan through discussions and presentations. The PCY (Peace Conference of Youth) is a program aimed to cultivate leaders who can take proactive actions and use their initiative for the achievement of world peace. Junior Chamber International Osaka (JCI Osaka) provides an opportunity for students from all over the world to learn and discover world peace, and to reach a conclusion of what needs to be done for world peace. We hope that members of PCY will use the International network constructed since 2010 in the continues effort and action to bring a permanent world peace to reality. The PCY provides an opportunity for students to learn about a number of different programs during the pre-event activities. Guest speakers will be invited for learning more about contribution to international peace as preparation at pre-PCY. Participants will be able to picture ideal world by learning what is actually done in the real world. Discussion at pre-PCY will be deepened by sharing knowledge and experience with students from different countries. All the participants build up ideas and proposals by working together and the problem-solving plans will be implemented.
