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 City of Braga, Portugal, has created a specific website to present the city’s intercultural strategy and activities.

The website aims to make the city’s commitment towards diversity public, to inform all citizens of the public local policies and projects in place, as well as to promote awareness raising in the community about interculturalism. This is done with the goal of achieving a more inclusive society.

The website contains information about all the projects developed in the city, including:

  • Anti-rumors posters;
  • Human Libraries - short stories about migrants living in the city which are also presented in short interactive talks;
  • Intercultural cafes - short webinars or seminars about specific themes within migration and interculturality;
  • Gender equality measures; and
  • Labour market inclusion initiatives.

In the project the City has cooperated with several partners, including Cruz Vermelha de Braga (Red Cross), Braga Job Center; Centro Distrital da Segurança Social (social Security) and local migrant associations (Associação Luso-Ucraniana de Braga, Associação Senegalesa de Portugal, Associação Cabo Verdiana de Braga, Representante da Comunidade de S. Tomé e Príncipe, Representante da Casa de Angola, Representante da Comunidade Guineense).

Viewers can access the webpage through the following address: www.bragadivercidade.pt
