Civic Peace Corps is the first social media platform dedicated to promoting the culture of peace, launched by the United Nations Information Centre Beirut and local partners.
The tool is the fruit of last year’s first online demonstration for peace, which was attended digitally by around 4,000 demonstrators.
On Civic Peace Corps, you can share your thoughts on peace, use your creativity to express peace and educate yourself on what is being done to achieve and sustain peace around the world.
