World Day for Cultural Diversity

The Canadian Coalition for Cultural Diversity website notes that further to UNESCO’s adoption of the Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity in November 2001, the General Assembly declared May 21 “World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development.”

The Canadian Coalition for Cultural Diversity indicates that this annual celebration “provides an opportunity to reflect on cultural diversity and learn better ways of living together. That’s why UNESCO is calling on member States and civil society to celebrate this day by bringing together as many actors and partners as possible.”
