Concurrent with the arrival of the International Day of Peace on September 21, the Peace Celebration was held in the Children and Young Adults Library of NLAI and attended by Fariborz Khosravi (NLAI’s deputy) and Reza Shahrabi (NLAI’s Information and Public Relation’s General Director). This program was held with the aim of institutionalizing the concept of peace among the children. About fifty children participated in this three-hour program.
Children participated in this ceremony with white uniforms and held an exhibition of their works with the subject of peace through depicting peace on papers.
Sanely Behnood, Children Rights Activist and Journalist, referred to the purpose of this program as promotion of respecting children’s rights and said, “Since it has stagnated as a motto and slogan, we are going to realize it as far as possible.”
The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is a United Nations-sanctioned holiday observed annually on 21 September.
