5 UPF Chapters Educate Students on the UN International Day for Tolerance

UPF chapters in Russia, Estonia, Georgia, Germany and Azerbaijan offered educational programs on the UN International Day for Tolerance, Nov. 16, 2013.

United Nations officials marked the International Day for Tolerance today by urging a renewed commitment to a principle that is more important than ever for ensuring a peaceful, sustainable future for all.

“We can only advance as a community of nations and cultures, drawing on human solidarity and recognizing that we share a common destiny. This is why tolerance is so important,” UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in his message for the day.

“Tolerance is not passive,” he added. “It demands an active choice to reach out on the basis of mutual understanding and respect, especially where disagreement exists. Tolerance means recognizing that our diversity is a strength – a wellspring of creativity and renewal for all societies.”
