Cultural diversity

Neelz Singh, Lami | Thursday, May 25, 2017
World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development is celebrated on May 21 to help people learn about the importance of cultural diversity and harmony.

The event speaks for itself as to bring people of all races and religion together to diverse culture. Various events are there to increase the understanding of issues around cultural diversity and development among governments, non-governmental organisations and the public.

Hence the need to intensify dialogue between and within societies, civilisations and cultures. We need to learn more about each other, to build mutual bonds and to break down the walls of ignorance that have insulated societies.

The term "the beauty of the world lies in the diversity of its people" captures the essence of the 2017 World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. Let difference beget not division, but an urge to celebrate diversity and pluralism.

The World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development tends to be marked in countries that embraced their varied cultural history and acknowledged the importance of embracing it. The World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development was first observed in 2003.

Embracing cultural diversity, open-mindedness and tolerance enabled us to become a symbol of success and prosperity.
