This initiative's objective is promoting intercultural dialogue and living, through the promotion of initiatives that call for the celebration of cultural diversity and citizenship. It aims to bring this theme out into the public space, recognizing and valuing the diversity of Setúbal's community and deepening cooperation with the immigrant associations, promoting collaboration amongst themselves as well as with other institutions.
It achieves this by:
- Promoting dialogue between the various cultural communities that live in the municipality of Setúbal;
- Valuing cultural diversity as a potential for human and social development;
- Emphasizing the work done by immigrant associations and informal groups representing specific communities
This initiative is not done for immigrants, but with the whole community in all its diversity. It aims to be more than just a program of different initiatives, so the organisers promote a participatory process, in which immigrant associations, citizens and entities from different areas of work and interest are invited to participate together.
