Title : Embracing our cultural differences: The Winnipeg Cultural Diversity Project
Description : This session presents an overview of The Winnipeg Cultural Diversity Project as an example of good practice that can be readily adapted for use by other communities. Now in its tenth year, over 900 students in grades five and six, from five UNESCO associated schools, representing different demographic areas of the city, have participated in this extra-curricular program. Each year, students from different backgrounds, cultures and religions participate in activities that encourage them to explore concepts of diversity and inclusion. The project is specifically designed to engage students in critically examining, understanding, respecting and valuing other cultures and religions that make up the diverse Winnipeg community.
