From Neighbours to Citizens: the Barcelona Interculturality Plan

A roadmap to the intercultural city based on common values, civic participation and everyday interactions.

The Living Together collection @ Cities of Migration showcases innovative local practices that promote social inclusion, participation and intercultural dialogue. This includes practices, strategies and initiatives in the following areas:

  • social cohesion, equality and nondiscrimination;
  • belonging, identity and interaction;
  • intercultural dialogue;
  • participation and citizenship; and participatory approaches that strengthen engagement between civil society and local government institutions.

The Living Together collection builds on the work of the Open Society Foundations’ At Home in Europe project.
