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 municipality of Parla has encouraged the formation of a network of young intercultural activists in Secondary Schools and the wider community. The network’s aim is the creation and development of the "Hall of History and Stories of the City", a repository for the collective identity of the city through the diversity and richness of all its citizens.

Joining the Network implies a commitment to attend an initial training workshop and initially participate in working groups to provide data collection and production of materials about:

  • Promotion of intercultural coexistence in the different neighborhoods of the city, through associations and individually proactive citizens.
  • Prevention of stereotypes, prejudices and false rumours that hinder living.
  • Teaching the values and attitudes of solidarity, cooperation, inclusion, equality and mutual respect.

The courses last 15 hours, are free and they are also open to members of local associations and other citizens who are motivated to work together with the city of Parla. After completing the course, participants become part of the Network of Promoters of Coexistence of Parla.
