Also this year Tor Vergata University of Rome has decided to celebrate the World Day for Cultural Diversity with an event that will involve the whole student community.


OVERVIEW

In 2001, UNESCO adopted the Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity and in December 2002, the UN General Assembly, in its resolution 57/249, declared May 21 to be the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, affirming culture’s contribution to the three dimensions of sustainable development, acknowledging further the natural and cultural diversity of the world, and recognizing that cultures and civilizations can contribute to, and are crucial enablers of, sustainable development.

CUG Office (Single Guarantee Committee) and the Welcome Office of Tor Vergata University of Rome, in order to celebrate this valuable and important day properly, are proposing to realize an online project. But we need your collaboration to make this beautiful day enjoyable while appreciating the cultural diversity surrounding us.
