In December 2017, SGM Pahang, SGM Melaka and SGM Negeri Sembilan organised SGI Peace Proposal sharing meetings in their respective state culture centres to promote peace in the community.
On December 9, all members of SGM Pahang worked together to organise the “Peace Night” event. 176 people attended, including new believers and Soka friends. Representatives from the four divisions shared on the “Peace Proposal”, a new endeavour for the Men and Women Divisions. One of the topics discussed was “We all are humans.” This topic highlighted the importance of appreciating others, especially the refugees and people of other ethnicities, and eliminating discrimination and division. The Junior Division and High School Division (HSD) presented two songs celebrating peace on earth. There was also an exhibition “Everything You Treasure – For a World Free from Nuclear Weapons” in both Chinese and English. Thirteen members from the HSD and Student Division (SD) narrated at the exhibition.
In Melaka, Youth Division members organised a sharing on December 15. Five members from the SD took up the responsibility to deliver a talk. They sang World Peace Begins, adding to the lively and youthful meeting with 140 participants.

The meeting was concluded with all the participants singing together a song composed by SGM Negeri Sembilan SD entitled Realising the Idea of Peace. After the meeting, SGM Negeri Sembilan SD had an exchange with seven SD members from Selangor.
