INTERNATIONAL  DAY  FOR  TOLERANCE


In order to generate public awareness, emphasize the dangers of intolerance 
and react in support of tolerance promotion and education, 
we solemnly proclaim the annual International Day for Tolerance

Tolerance is ...
... respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world's cultures, 
our forms of expression and ways of being human. 

 Tolerance is ...
... fostered by knowledge, openness, communication, and freedom of thought, conscience and belief.
