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.

Strasbourg City Council and several of its partner cities are involved in the Council of Europe’s No Hate Speech Movement. Since 2014, a local campaign has been running in Strasbourg, with the aim of combating racist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic speech, and rhetoric based on gender identity or inciting radicalisation. Such discourse very often has its roots in stereotypes. Training local stakeholders makes it possible to raise young people’s and local associations’ awareness of the way in which they can combat these stereotypes and promote alternative narratives.

The ‟Connexions” and ‟We can” manuals are particularly useful tools for players wishing to engage in this type of action. A participatory budget will be launched in Strasbourg to enable citizens to take ownership of this campaign and develop new projects.

This project is being implemented by Strasbourg City Council with the network of partner cities of the Club de Strasbourg.
