The UN plays the card of mulitcultural dialogue

The former Portuguese President Jorge Sampaio, High Representative of the Alliance of Civilisations in the UN, explains the aim of this initiative. "In a world marked by such deep imbalance, it is not only nature that is suffering from an advanced state of degradation. Today's societies are also submerged in a much degraded human atmosphere. We have to do something to improve dialogue among people, to turn cultural and religious diversity into an opportunity for real, lasting human development for everyone. ... The complex international situation that took root after 9/11 and with the other terrorist attacks that relentlessly marked this decade, have turned dialogue between civilisations, religions and cultures into a humanitarian emergency that cannot be put off."
