Join us at the Central Library of the Commission in rue Van Maerlant 18 (conference room -1/32) on 21 October at 13:15 to find out more about the "intercultural city". Author Phil Wood will present and discuss his bestselling book "The Intercultural City: planning for diversity advantage".
In a world where individuals are increasingly mobile, how people from different cultures live together is one of the key issues of the 21st century. There is a growing need for new thinking on how diverse communities can live together in productive harmony instead of leading parallel and separate lives. Policy is often dominated by combating the perceived negative effects of diversity - too little thought has been given to how a 'diversity dividend' or increased innovative capacity might be achieved.
The event is organised in the framework of the 2008 European Year of Intercultural Dialogue and the 50th anniversary of the Central Library.
