The ICC UK Network
In 2019, the six UK ICC International members agreed to collaborate and create a national network to further their intercultural work on a national level in 2020. The network will facilitate cross-council learning on intercultural issues and create a shared voice for councils to influence national government.
The iCoCo Foundation, within funding and technical and methodological support from the Council of Europe, has been raising the profile of ICC in the UK in 2018-19. As a result, Intercultural Cities was delighted to welcome the new members Manchester, Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees and Leeds to the ICC international network. Together with London-Lewisham, the UK cities have chosen the topics they wish to focus on as a national network in 2020, and an administrative structure is being set up to achieve outcomes for 2020 onwards. All UK members will be contributing their expertise to the Network, as well as learning from it, and developing even better policy and practice.
