The Intercultural city aims at building its policies and identity on the explicit acknowledgement that diversity can be a resource for the development of the society.

The first step is the adoption (and implementation) of strategies that facilitate positive intercultural encounters and exchanges, and promote equal and active participation of residents and communities in the development of the city, thus responding to the needs of a diverse population. The Intercultural integration policy model is based on extensive research evidence, on a range of international legal instruments, and on the collective input of the cities member of the Intercultural Cities programme that share their good practice examples on how to better manage diversity, address possible conflicts, and benefit from the diversity advantage.

This section offers examples of intercultural approaches that facilitate the development and implementation of intercultural strategies.

The Programme “Amadora Empreende” seeks to identify, in association with the youth and people in situations of social vulnerability, individual entrepreneurial initiatives by providing the necessary conditions for developing a business idea. There are two distinct points of action: “A Incubadora Quick” (directed at young people aged 18 to 30 years) and “Quem não Arrisca não Petisca” (directed to people in socially vulnerable positions (women, disabled, immigrants and prisoners and ex-prisoners). This is intended as a program of selective support, which can give strength and exposure to projects that are often overlooked for lack of support of development or financial support.

This initiative aims to provide a special area of information and awareness for the challenges and opportunities faced in education, training and employment, bringing together in one room schools and businesses. During three days, these companies promote their services, projects and best practices, and some publicize job opportunities and accept resumes from those wishing to apply to offers exposed or make a spontaneous application.
