NEUCHÀTOI 2013: Cultural Interaction To Overcome Cultural Barriers
Following its success in 2006 and 2009, NEUCHÀTOI is taking place again in 2013 to promote diversity in public areas and the positive image of a plural society. From April to November 2013, the Association NeuchàToi and the Working Community for the Integration of Foreign Nationals (CTIE) are overseeing the organisation of over sixty events across the canton of Neuchâtel, which are being carried out in partnership with a wide range of private and public partners.
Exchanges, cultural or sports encounters, round tables, shows and concerts: NEUCHÀTOI 2013 is a programme of instructive and varied intercultural events, targeted at the entire population of Neuchâtel to encourage fruitful discussions and debate on its heterogeneity while identifying shared values and the feeling of belonging. The main aim of all these events is to improve mutual knowledge and understanding among Swiss people and people from migrant backgrounds and to instil confidence in the whole population so that they can live together while respecting pluralism in a multicultural society that seeks to foster inter-community integration.
