Today – 16th November 2021 – is the International Day of Tolerance

The United Nations introduced this Day in 1995 and, in their ‘Declaration of Principles on Tolerance’, stated their Resolve “to take all positive measures necessary to promote tolerance in our societies, because tolerance is not only a cherished principle, but also a necessity for peace and for the economic and social advancement of all people.”

“Tolerance is necessary between individuals and at the family and community levels. Tolerance promotion and the shaping of attitudes of openness, mutual listening and solidarity should take place in schools and universities and through non-formal education, at home and in the workplace.”
