Culture, Heritage and Diversity


The Spanish Network of Intercultural Cities

The objective of the Spanish Intercultural cities network is to foster understanding of the challenges of cultural diversity among urban policy makers and civil society in Spanish cities. The network will apply the Intercultural cities methodology for reviewing and enhancing local integration efforts based on the concepts of interculturality and diversity advantage. These concepts focus on public discourse, perceptions of diversity and community relations; cultural literacy and intercultural innovation as key components of good governance and policy-making in diverse communities; and mediated intercultural mixing in public space and organisations.


The specific objective of the network is to facilitate the exchange experiences between member cities in order to encourage further development of intercultural policies and practices.
