Intercultural Cities

Cultural diversity is an asset not a threat
8’00" 26 March 2011 Council of Europe Neuchatel, Switzerland

Cities can gain enormously from the entrepreneurship, variety of skills and creativity associated with cultural diversity, provided they adopt policies and practices that facilitate intercultural interaction and inclusion. The Council of Europe has analysed the experience of a range of cities across the continent which are managing diversity as an asset, rather than as a threat.

In this film we look at positive examples of intercultural inclusion in seven European cities: Lyon, Reggio-Emilia, Neuchatel, Lublin, Oslo and Neuköln (Berlin).
