Alliance of Civilizations is an international movement sponsored by the United Nations. Its main objective is to promote the dialogue between countries of different cultures , beyond the differences, to build a global future chaired by respect for diversity, and harmony of civilizations as a basis for international agreement and cooperation within the framework of peace. So, in this blog on diversity and its management, it makes sense the news included below .
La Alianza de Civilizaciones es un movimiento internacional auspiciado por las Naciones Unidas. Su objetivo principal es promover el diálogo de civilizaciones, por encima de las diferencias, para construir un futuro mundial presidido por el respeto a la diversidad, por la concordia de culturas y por la colaboración internacional, en el marco de la paz. Tiene por tanto cabida en este blog sobre la diversidad y su gobierno. De ahí la razón de la noticia que se expone a continuación
Dear Friend of the UN Alliance of Civilizations,
It is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the Third Forum of the UN Alliance of Civilizations, which will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 27-29 May 2010.
President Lula da Silva of Brazil, Prime Minister Zapatero of Spain, Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and President Sampaio, High Representative for the UN Alliance of Civilizations, will join over 2,000 political and corporate leaders, civil society activists, youth, journalists, foundations, international organizations, and religious leaders. The diverse city of Rio, built on a long standing practice of cultural exchanges and cross-fertilization, will provide the perfect backdrop for efforts to address the complex challenges diverse societies face today.
More than ever, our world is shaped by intense interaction among diverse cultural, religious and linguistic communities. This growing diversity is a source of enrichment and opportunity. But it can also lead to tensions, misunderstanding and hostility. That is why building peaceful relations among diverse cultures is one of the most important tasks modern societies are faced with – and the purpose of the Alliance of Civilizations Forum.
I hope you will be interested in participating in the Rio forum and I encourage you to RSVP at the following address: http://inscricoes.aliancadecivilizacoes.mre.gov.br/
Please note that meals and transfer from hotels to the Forum venue will be provided in Rio. Participants are responsible for all other travel costs and accommodation.

I look forward to seeing you in Rio in May.
