Intercultural forum Hamburg

This fourth edition of the conference invited participants through multidisciplinary means (theater, lectures, films etc.) to discuss the issue of cultural diversity.

In the context of increased globalisation and ethnic and cultural tensions, the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations asked people in the framework of Create competition to submit apps or games promoting intercultural dialogue and an open and respectful exchange between people from different cultural backgrounds. These apps or games should also encourage the sharing of experiences and better practices of living together.

This article examines the issue of intercultural dialogue in the Euro-Mediterranean area in the broader context of security issues.
