Baghdad City of Peace Carnival-World Peace Day

A group of Baghdadi youths who gathered through civil society associations. We believe in the existence of peace within every single individual and aim at bringing the title of “City of Peace” back to Baghdad throughout three values (Civil, Responsibility and Sharing), and throughout providing chances of participation between youths and social associations. We work to provide chances for investing youths’ power and efforts and empower them in order to build up a civil society believing in peaceful coexistence. We launched our carnival in the year 2011 downtown Baghdad and we faced new aspiration and new challenges. Over the years, we proved that the success of Baghdad City of Peace Carnival is the result of our faith in teamwork and the spirituality of volunteering work. We work in the service of society by holding a variety of campaigns and initiations where we gather during the International Day of Peace.
