Mediterranean region is becoming more and more culturally diverse. Due to globalisation and populations movements there is a rise in the multicultural fact, because of the diversity of people with different ethnics, languages, religions, customs and cultural backgrounds. The great cultural diversity represents an advantage that will encourage all those living in to explore the benefits of the rich and wide cultural heritage and opportunities to learn from different cultural traditions through the intercultural dialogue.
The Mediterranean National Societies are working together towards a common ambition: to build jointly a future partnership to respond to the needs of the most vulnerable and for human, social and cultural understanding, which involves values, behaviours and ways of life that reject violence and spreads a conflict resolution attitude by facing causes and to solve problems through dialogue and negotiation. All of these under the Red Cross and Red Crescent Principles and respect for people’s human rights.
