Young people desire to build societies based on fairness, social justice, participation, and a shared future, all of which require participation in socio-economic growth based on democracy and inclusive systems of governance as well as respect for authority, law, and fundamental rights and freedoms, which include cultural diversity. Young people can be essential in advancing intercultural dialogue and mutual cultural understanding. They can help shape the social, economic, political, and cultural life of their communities and countries.
The role of art in the convergence of cultures
Arts are the common language among the peoples of the world, as they transcend all differences to create for them a distinguished civilized dialogue. Through art, people can build bridges of communication, rapprochement, and acquaintance among themselves:
The arts are the best ambassadors between cultures. They have overcome language barriers and prevailing patterns to enhance understanding between people. This confirms the importance of skills in bringing people together and gives a message to the world about moderation, respect for others, and equality.
The arts played an essential role in the rapprochement of peoples, and even during wars, the skills were appreciated and revered because they are among the highest values, and they are the guarantee of achieving cultural dialogue between civilizations to reject everything related to racism, terrorism, and colonialism in all their colors.
The role of cultural diversity in bringing people together through tourism
Travel and tourism are a way to get people closer to creating a shared understanding of each other’s reality and culture and then help create an environment ready for peace
Tourism can bring us together from all walks of life without discrimination and regardless of race, color, gender, or age. It allows us to explore and express the world’s people compellingly to understand each other better. Destinations, history, and diverse cultures unite people. It can make a difference; we can learn from each other, respect cultures, and open the door to different conversations so that our world becomes more understanding.
