Project ID 560GLO3000

Designed as a robust and sustainable capacity-building initiative, the United Arab Emirates and UNESCO Global Tolerance Leadership Programme seeks to empower Young Leaders (25 to 40 years old) by reinforcing their skills, knowledge and capacities to design and implement more effective actions to promote tolerance, inclusion and dialogue as prerequisites for an improved enjoyment of human rights by vulnerable groups. By strengthening their ability to serve as agents of change in their own communities, the Programme will also support the design and implementation of local projects adapted to the specificities of their context that will help create just, peaceful and cohesive societies.
