It’s a non-profit organization based in Berlin, Germany, seeking to promote dialogue and peace via cooperation between Arab and German civil society organizations; established by Arab-German youth initiatives, NGOs, workers and activists who are working in the field of youth empowerment and sustainable development. During the 31st session of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) that took place in Paris on the 2nd November 2001, the Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity was adopted, then on the 20th December 2002, the UN General Assembly, through Resolution 57/249, decided to proclaim the 21st May as the World Day for Cultural Diversity, Dialogue and Development. In this frame, we aim to deepen understanding regarding intercultural dialogue, values of cultural diversity and to encourage cultural sensitivity. Our philosophy encourages the achievement of a balanced flow of cultural goods and services, increasing the international exchanges, integrating culture into sustainable development, promoting freedom and human rights. We strongly consider that supporting cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue will open up new perspecties for sustainable growth and innovation. The key factors that act as the internal motor for sustainable development are creativity and culture. Bringing together people with different educational and cultural backgrounds, encouraging them to communicate and share visions will increase understanding different points of view and practices, strengthening active citizenship, peace and the feeling of belonging to the same community.
