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 project targets refugees and provides training in drug prevention and addiction aid. The training programme is elaborated within an intercultural and participative dialogue with the peer helpers. It enables help to be given to other refugees at risk of dependency.

The trained peer helpers inform on-site about the risks of drug consumption and accompany, if necessary, the person concerned to the local Drug Advisory Services. Individual advice and informative events are organised in refugee accommodation.

The peer helpers are an important connector for people who are difficult to reach through the drug help system. They ensure that healthcare is accessible for everyone. Furthermore, the peer helpers themselves are empowered and further qualified concerning their communication skills.

The project is implemented by three Berlin District Offices in partnership with the NGOs IBBC and Vista. It is financed by funds of the Masterplan of Integration and Security and evaluated by the supporting partner.
