Reinforced partnership of the ELDW with the Intercultural Cities Programme
Driven by its 2015 theme "Living together in multicultural societies: respect, dialogue, interaction", the ELDW project reinforced co-operation with the Intercultural Cities Programme (ICC) of the Council of Europe. The ICC supports cities in reviewing their policies through an intercultural lens and developing comprehensive intercultural strategies to help them manage diversity positively. Over 70 cities across Europe are currently enjoying Council of Europe support in developing, implementing and evaluating local diversity and inclusion strategies, by using the set of analytical and practical tools proposed by the Programme. Municipalities participating in the ELDW are invited to fill in the Intercultural Cities INDEX on the occasion of the Democracy Week 2015.
