Monday 21 May 2018 is World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, also known as Diversity Day, which aims to help communities around the world understand the value of cultural diversity and how we can learn to live together in harmony. It also highlights the importance of bridging the gap between cultures, necessary for bringing peace and stability throughout the world.

Proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 2002, the day provides an opportunity for governments, policy makers and other civil organisations and communities around the world to develop strategies for sustainable development and to address important global issues such as peace, fighting poverty and promoting gender equality, high quality education, and human rights.
