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.

In March 2018, the City Council of Fuenlabrada has published the “Fuenlabrada Antirumor Catalogue”, a guide with activities and games to fight against racism and promote intercultural coexistence in the city. The Catalogue has been prepared through a participatory process that has involved 16 civil society organisations. It was presented to the public by the mayor, Mr Javier Ayala, on the occasion of the Technical Conference of Municipal Awareness for Intercultural Coexistence.

The mayor explained that "in this catalogue each of the participating 16 civil society organisations has proposed activities and games that everyone can use to participate and work on a collective reflection about the prejudices on cultural diversity that exist and persist in the society."

The catalogue includes gymkhanas, role games, poetry, theater, detective games, and a list of municipal boards, municipal services and facilities of Fuenlabrada that work on these topics; in this way it is ensured that the anti-rumours work and activities reach out to the whole city and improve coexistence and social cohesion. 

Fuenlabrada is part of the ICC and of the Antirumors network since 2013.
