As increasing numbers of persons move across countries today, new stories and layers are woven into the social fabric of the cities we live in. On the occasion of International Migrants Day on 18 December 2021, the Intercultural Cities programme together with its member cities wishes to highlight the potential of the diversity brought forward by all migrants residing in cities.
Under the slogan “More than migrants” the ICC programme aims to break down stereotypes that collate to individuals when they are considered part of a group and will focus on the many things which make us all diverse. The campaign will focus on the contributions we can all make to our cities irrespective of our background when the necessary mechanisms are in place and everyone is enabled to make the most of their dreams, knowledge, and aspirations, as a contribution to the local environment.
The campaign this year will consist of four parts under the joint slogan “More than migrants”:
- Statements from Mayors and elected officials
- Statements from migrants
- School competition (Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Ukrainian)
- Video produced by the ICC secretariat.
