21 may : World Cultural Diversity Day for Dialogue and Development

For dialogue and development

Today, the 21 may, this #8217 is World Cultural Diversity Day for Dialogue and Development. A day dedicated to highlighting humanity's common heritage, for better “living together”.

UNESCO has adopted the 02 November 2001 a universal declaration on cultural diversity. It was there that she began to recognize for the first time, cultural diversity as a “common heritage of humanity”. Its safeguarding thus began to be seen as a concrete and ethical imperative inseparable from the respect for human dignity.

As a result,, The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the 21 May as “World Cultural Diversity Day for Dialogue and Development”. The aim was to deepen our reflections on the values of cultural diversity in order to learn how to better “living together”.

Let's respect our differences

This day allows us to get to know and appreciate better what we owe to other cultures. This is an opportunity to measure the diversity of their contributions, their uniqueness, complementarity and solidarity.

Knowing and recognizing our differences, respect them in that they underpin our own identity. It is giving the chance to the centuries that are coming to flourish at last out of identity conflicts of all kinds.

Cultural diversity is a fundamental human right. Fighting for its promotion means fighting against cultural stereotypes and fundamentalism.

Respecting our differences will enable us to strengthen peace, Security, and global stability.

Promoting mutual dialogue

By establishing the 21 May as “World Cultural Diversity Day for Dialogue and Development “, THE UN provides an important direction. Beyond sex, age, nationality, cultural affiliation and religion, it places mutual dialogue at the centre of all efforts to achieve a world of peace, able to cope with the future. Mutual understanding between cultures, plays a key role. As Elsbeth, “Only dialogue can serve as the basis for a pluralistic and cultural society”. (
