In 1995 UNESCO declared 16 November as International Day of Tolerance. The purpose of this day is to raise awareness about the dangers of bias and the importance of respecting and valuing other people’s culture, forms of expression, their universal human rights and fundamental freedoms.
Here at EPALE we appreciate the importance of adult education as a means to foster tolerance. It can help migrants and disadvantaged groups integrate into society and make society more open and accepting to other cultures, it can help break stereotypes and prejudice, and raise learners’ cultural awareness.
Take a look at some of our featured blog posts and resources on the topic of adult learning and tolerance.
