The PCY (Peace Conference of Youth) is a program to aim cultivating 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 wish the students to be the leaders to build international network for seeking world peace and to spread the movement globally.
There are various approaches towards the achievement of world peace, but common to all of them is the essential element of sustainability.
All problems arise out of people’s interest and it brings disparity. The disparity creates problems in many places in the world. Especially the food problem is the most severe matter to maintain life. The lives saved by solving food problem will save other lives and its circulation of life will be the resolution to all the root cause.
The PCY 2013 focuses actions to actualize the circulation of life which is the basis of world peace. The students will discuss the subject “Building up a system to solve various problems derived from food problem”, and challenge to make project plans and bring them into actions.
The PCY is an event with students from all over the world. Participants can feel what thoughts the students have and what they are carrying out. Applicants are from major universities and colleges from all over the world. This opportunity will enable you to make friends who bring great influence in the future.
The PCY 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 ways to achieve “lasting peace on Earth”. It will be an environment to gauge opinions and make connections.
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.
The PCY will aid in the development of leadership skills and promote proactive traits to realize world peace, all without an admission charge to participants. It will provide an open environment for students from all over the world to gather and discover the path to a bright global future.
