Intercultural Cities: Limerick

Limerick formally signed the Intercultural Cities agreement on 19th November 2014, in advance of the conference “Sports, Arts and Culture in the Intercultural City”, which was held in Limerick on 20th &21st November.

The Intercultural Cities initiative aims at stimulating new ideas and practices concerning the integration of migrants and minorities.  Doras Luimní are working closely with other cities around the world to promote a greater awareness of the positive role diversity can play in the development of a city. More about the programme can be found at www.coe.int/interculturalcities
