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.

Salisbury shows its intercultural commitment with a public declaration and a Strategic Plan

The Australian City of Salisbury shows its intercultural commitment trough a public declaration and the adoption of an Intercultural Strategic Plan for the period 2017 -2027.

The City’s commitment to the intercultural approach is demonstrated through the declaration of the Mayor of the City of Salisbury, Miss Gillian Aldrige[1] where she presents the Intercultural Strategic Plan 2017-2027. Additionally, the adoption of the Intercultural Strategic Plan 2017 -2027 is per se a strong commitment from the authorities in Salisbury.

The Intercultural Strategic Plan 2017-2027 is evaluated and updated every year through the Intercultural Strategic Implementation Plan. The evaluation report is prepared by the Division of Community health and Wellbeing of the Department of Community development and reviewed by the Executive annually. This review process is an opportunity to recommend updates or additions to the Implementation plan, as well as amend the priorities assigned to each action.

The majority of the actions for the implementation of the intercultural strategy are funded through the operating budget of the Community Development department, while other actions are either externally funded through State or Federal funding, or are categorised as “resources to be identified” (partnerships and reallocation of internal existing budgets or new initiative bids).

The City of Salisbury has an official webpage where the communication on the intercultural statement, strategy and action plan can be easily accessed.
