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.

Within the framework of the international project “Building Dignity”, Bergen (Norway) is working to create a centre combining services and learning – bringing all essential activities under one roof at an attractive location. The centre will be placed in a former education centre for teachers, Landås.

The Bergen Inclusion centre will gather the introduction centre for refugees, the adult training centre and administration into one place, which at the same time will feature sports and cultural facilities to ensure the building can be used throughout the day. The centre will be open to the local community and organisations and aims to foster inclusion and intercultural interaction.

The building process aims to place human rights at the centre of all stages of the conception, be it in how materials are used, how the project or building is designed or how the services are planned. The aim is for the project to be a forerunner in using architecture as a means to building inclusive societies.

The project and new centre are planned to be finalised in 2024.
