Feel the Impact of Kanazawa
It has been 100 years since the JCI Movement started and we will celebrate its 100th anniversary this year in 2015.
JCI members have challenged and acted with the spirit and ambition to produce a better change while facing the problems of the time, and they have created each era.
Some problems were solved in these 100 years, while others remain unsolved and have become more complicated.
Within the framework between countries, sometimes their national interests collide with each other as nationalism.
Therefore, the role of younger generation NGOs such as JCI is becoming more and more important for the realization of world peace.
There is something that only JCI can do.
This theme shows JCI member's determination and desire to create a peaceful world together and expand the impact from Kanazawa to the world now by rediscovering its mission and possibilities and addressing its challenge.
