Also known today as the ‘Prince of Travelers’, Ibn Battuta has traveled the world to 40 countries and has expressed invaluable insights into the culture of traveling. His travels made him discover the universal benefits of travel and its impact on world peace. This is the inspiration being conveyed by the Moroccan Association of Ibn Battuta. Mohamed Dekkak, the Honorary Chairman stated, “We hope to bring the adventures of Ibn Battuta to the general public and inspire modern day travelers to develop the values exhibited by the greatest traveler of pre-modern times and into becoming Ambassadors of Peace.”

According to Aziz Benami, President of the Moroccan Association of Ibn Battuta, “The festival seeks to celebrate the memory of Ibn Battuta while promoting peace, universal values, and intercultural understanding.”
