Fare partner in Argentina receives United Nations award for Intercultural Innovation
Fare Argentinian partner Fundación Encontrarse en La Diversidad has received a United Nations Alliance of Civilisations (UNAOC) award for its work on creating awareness of discrimination in the country, while using educational mechanisms to engage teens and young adults.
The United Nations (UN) headquarters played host for the first time to the Intercultural Innovation Award Ceremony.
The ten awarded organisations were celebrated for their work in the presence of ambassadors and high-level UN officials.
Throughout a one-year support period, they will receive guidance to expand and amplify their impact in promoting intercultural dialogue and addressing these issues in new ways. In addition to receiving financial grants and increased visibility, awardees will have the opportunity to participate in training activities as well as to become a part of the exclusive “Intercultural Leaders” network, a skills and knowledge sharing platform for civil society organizations and young leaders.
Fundación Encontrarse en La Diversidad received an honourable mention for their work in response to the lack of awareness around discrimination in Argentina.
On its first edition, the award received more than 1,300 applications from 130 countries. The award is the result of a joint partnership between UNAOC and the BMW Group to build inclusive societies.
