Club of Amsterdam organises on
June 28 a special
season event with the title "Taste of Diversity". It includes
a cultural market and a conference.
Taste of Diversity is about
creating greater awareness of cultural diversity and strengthening,
promoting and sharing of cultural wealth. The idea of intercultural
dialogue takes as its starting point the recognition of difference
and multiplicity of the world in which we live. These differences of opinion,
viewpoint, and values exist not only within each individual culture but
also between cultures. 'Dialogue seeks to approach these multiple
viewpoints with a desire to understand and learn from those that do not
see the world in the same way as ourselves. An effective dialogue,
therefore, is an enriching and opening interaction which encourages the
respectful sharing of ideas and an exploration of the different thought-processes
through which the world is perceived and understood.
In an increasingly globalised and interdependent world, where encountering
cultural difference can scarcely be avoided, the ability to enter into
a tolerant and respectful dialogue is a vital skill for nations,
communities, and individuals.
