Cultural diversity in unity

For thousands of years, people have been living on this planet. We’ve been divided by physical boundaries, creating various cultures adapted to the environment where we live and the people we live with. We’ve been divided by our own human nature, willing to be part of a group, feeling stronger to belong. Today we can again more easily reach out to other cultures through technology, but domains such as the media is often not that objective and deep down we carry with us the legacy of our past, feeling different and blaming other for our shortages. Cultural diversity doesn't have to divide us anymore.

Finally we can better appreciate the stranger living next to us or far away.

We learn also more about ourselves and our society. Why are we acting in a certain way or why is our society organised like it is at the present moment? We want the readers to open up themselves and start their own journey in search of a new social identity in these changing times.

Knowing more about yourself and the other one, seeing the connections between everyone and all creatures, creates understanding and bonding. We get closer to ourselves, knowing and understanding the past and the present moment of our cultures and other cultures we’re not born into, accepting cultural diversity that unites us as human beings, all being born on the same planet.

When I see you through my eyes, I think that we are different. When I see you through my heart, I know we are the same. Doe Zantamata

We invite you to get along with us and participate in this journey so that also your voice will be heard. Let’s make the present your and our moment and develop your life in your own creative way in cultural diversity and in this beautiful and diverse world.
