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.

To develop a more sustainable model of working with Anti-Rumours, the C4i team in Limerick, with the participation Anti-Rumour Advocates and local networks around third-level education, came up with an idea that Anti-Rumours could be embedded into the post-secondary teaching and learning. Each third-level institution has incorporated the Anti-Rumours project into an aspect of their courses and used the project as an assignment for part of a course:

  • In The University of Limerick approximately 100 students in Psychology participated as part of a Political Psychology course delivered by one of our Anti-Rumour advocates.
  • The Anti-Rumours approach has been included in the Development Education module run by Mary Immaculate College as part of the teacher training programme. The module encourages participants to take part in an external event and lists the Anti-Rumour workshops.
  • The MA in Social Care course in Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) has adopted the Anti-Rumours methods as part of its Diversity module. In addition, they are currently working on projects as part of an Anti-Rumour assignment co-ordinated through the Course Director. The students staff are being trained in the ‘Anti-Rumour’ methodology as part of the Teaching and Learning seminar organised for staff of all three universities on the 26th of April, 2015 

Furthermore, the Limerick Youth Service developed links with second-level schools and ran workshops as part of their participation in the project. The workshops have resulted in the development of an Anti-Rumours Education pack which can be used in Second-level schools throughout Ireland.

Lastly, third-level students engaged in the Anti-Rumours campaign have started planning an Anti-Rumours Flash Mob / Performance for the 11th of April in Limerick City centre. The mob will include students from LIT, Mary Immaculate College and the University of Limerick and highlight the intercultural contribution made by students to the city. The mob will use Anti-Rumour facts on placards as well as the Anti-Rumour logo as part of the performance.
