YCoalition International marked the International Day of Peace 2023 with great fervour at the International Conference Hall on the Daffodil Smart City campus in collaboration with Daffodil International University (DIU).

The theme for this year’s celebration was ‘Actions for Peace: Our Ambition for the #GlobalGoals,’ emphasising the importance of concerted efforts in achieving global peace and sustainable development. The event commenced with a symbolic gesture of peace as white pigeons were released into the sky, setting a tranquil tone for the day’s proceedings.

Prof. Dr. Kudrat-E-Khuda Babu, Head of the Department of Law at DIU, presided over the program. Mrs. Nusrath Fathima Ghazzali, Deputy Chief of Mission, IOM Bangladesh, graced the event as the Chief Guest, delivering a thought-provoking address that highlighted the significance of peace in achieving global goals.

“Respect, tolerance and understanding towards each other can bring peace among us.”
