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 Lutsk Castle serves as a center of intercultural dialogue and interaction, offering a public space for all nationalities and ethnicities living in the city and aiming to unite people by drawing attention to their common history. It hosts various cultural events, such as festivals or art-shows that encourage different ethnic/cultural communities to participate and express their cultural identity. Examples are the festival "Palette of Cultures", the art-show "Night in Lutsk castle", the festival "Polissia summer with folklore” or the festival of medieval spirit "Prince's feast". Moreover, discussions on historic themes are held regularly, in which historians and representatives of national minorities take part, informing locals about the intercultural history of the city as each ethnic group has contributed to its development. The Lutsk Castle has become an object of urban heritage, shared by all. Its events are organized by the Department for Culture of Lutsk City Council in cooperation with several NGOs and cultural/ethnic associations.
