Overview

JCI has officially launched to promote Peace Is Possible Campaign together with United Nations in 2016. The Peace is Possible campaign mobilizes young people worldwide to create awareness, advocate, take action and commit to an everlasting world peace.

In alliance with JCI, JCI Muar had successfully promoted Peace Is Possible via organizing the first Peace Is Possible Fun Run in October 2016 and had successfully organized the Peace Is Possible Fun Run 2.0. However, JCI Muar has made this Peace Is Possible Fun Run 2.0 different from previous year, where the category of Peace is Possible was designed based on individual and family basis. We believe a world of peace can be initiated by individual as well as rendering the children and parents from family basis.

1) Young active citizens stand out for action;
