President’s message for 2014 UN World Day for Cultural Diversity and Dialogue

(originally published May 2014)

The UN World Day for Cultural Diversity and Dialogue, May 21, is a reminder to us that developing education and intercultural skills to sustain the diversity and strengthen harmony of societies is a challenge that still lies before us. For this reason SIETAR Europa, as part of its commitment to intercultural values, has made renewing paradigms of culture and diversity a thematic focus for the coming twelve months. The next SIETAR Europa congress, which will be held in Valencia, Spain on May 20-24, 2015 under that theme, will therefore be a way to observe the 2015 World Day of Cultural Diversity and Dialogue. SIETAR Europa invites you to join us in Refreshing the Cultural Paradigm.

Livingstone Thompson
President of SIETAR Europa
