Post Show Report
"To treat every person, no matter what his creed or race, as a special soul, is a mark of Islam."
- Late H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan
United Arab Emirates marks another milestone as His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE President and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, declares 2019 as the UAE Year of Tolerance.
Under the declaration comes the 7 Pillars of Tolerance encompassing all levels of society to ensure the promotion and practice of the value of tolerance across the nation.
Tolerance in the Community shall promote the values of tolerance within family and community levels through relevant community centre activities. This aims to encourage Emirati and non-Emirati families and individuals to embrace the culture of tolerance in their daily lives and to believe in multiculturalism as a positive tool for nation-building.
Tolerance in Education institutionalises tolerance in all UAE schools, universities, and learning institutions. This is to strengthen UAE’s stand that through education we can achieve a better understanding of the world around us and we can foster cooperation to spread the practice of tolerance in place of extremism, hate speech, and racism.
Tolerance at the Workplace aims to create a safe, tolerant and cohesive workplace in the public and private sector organisations through programs highlighting equal opportunities. UAE, home to millions of talents and professionals of over 200 nationalities, is strengthening its status as a global destination for work and life.
Tolerance and Culture have been established to promote cultural tolerance through a variety of art and cultural events. This aims to enhance a deeper understanding of other culture, especially in the minds of the youth, as expressed through visual and lyrical arts, traditional dances, and other forms of arts.
UAE Model of Tolerance solidiﬁes the nation’s quest to become a global capital for tolerance. UAE leadership is committed to its ongoing and future projects designed to promote dialogue between cultures and to sustain its huge efforts to inspire its neighbouring countries to embrace the culture of tolerance and peaceful co-existence.
Tolerance in Policies and Legislation is UAE’s paramount effort to guarantee sustainability in the practice of tolerance. Through policy, legislation such as the Law on Multiculturalism, and executive regulations, UAE champions the value of tolerance beneﬁting all its citizens and its residents regardless of race, age, religion, gender, political belief, and social standing.
Tolerance in the Media, by using both traditional and social media tools, the UAE aims to promote the value of tolerance, a huge leap from the global current use of media spreading negativity and hatred causing divisiveness among individuals, tribes and nations. UAE will spearhead efforts to turnaround the use of both traditional and social media to promote a more tolerant, compassionate world for the future generation.
Thus, in support of the UAE government’s efforts toward a tolerant world, the World Tolerance Summit 2019 introduces new event features in the hopes that not one single member of the global society will be left behind to enjoy the social, economic, cultural, and humane beneﬁts of a tolerant and accepting world.
"The United Arab Emirates is based on firm and strong values that seek to strengthen its relations on the basis of mutual respect, dialogue and cooperation and the abandonment of all forms of terrorism, violence and intolerance."
- H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan
UAE President and Ruler of Abu Dhabi
"There is no future for the region without intellectual reconstruction that establishes values of tolerance, pluralism, and acceptance of the other intellectually, culturally, ethnically, and religiously."
- H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler Of Dubai
"The UAE was and still is an advocate of peace and the symbol of development and tolerance among peoples, cultures and civilizations."
- H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan
Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces
"We are united in our respect for each other. We recognize the human values that we all treasure. In our tolerance lies our strength."
His Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahyan
UAE Minister of Tolerance
WTS 2019 Conference will focus on how education and knowledge-sharing can be a powerful tool to teach and advocate tolerance in diversity.
The Conference will touch on issues vital to the promotion of tolerance and peaceful co-existence where every social fabric of society will be represented.
Every tier of society - women, youth, educators, employees, students, artists, government ofﬁcials, entrepreneurs, etc., will be well represented and will have a dedicated time to share their insights on building a vibrant and tolerant society.
WTS 2019 serves as a platform for various local and international government ministries and agencies to exhibit their contribution to promote efficiency in multiculturalism, professionalism in diversity, and peaceful co-existence at the workplace, and their active participation in tolerance-inspired sponsored events.
WTS 2019 links the hands of different nations together in an engaging feature that is open and conducive to leaders to conduct open dialogue and discussions to promote stronger cooperation and understanding to achieve a tolerant world.
A series of discussion will be conducted with topics focusing mainly on tolerance and people of determination in the government, the contribution of women and family units in the promotion of tolerance, and the signiﬁcant role the students and the youth play to ensure that efforts in the promotion of tolerance are sustained and prioritized.
Through WTS 2019, universities, schools and all learning institutions will ﬁnd their perfect platform to exhibit their perspectives and efforts on tolerance as reﬂected in their activities and outreach projects, and as integrated into their academic programs and curricula.
Support for the creation of a tolerant society can be seen in various art forms such as in paintings and photography. WTS Art and Photography Exhibition will invite artists to showcase their masterpiece and offer them the opportunity to gain more prestige by being selected as WTS Best Art and Best Photography Awardee. Their= winning creation will be shared on WTS social media platforms as a gesture to a well-deserved recognition for their artistic effort in the promotion of tolerance.
The Tolerance Library offers delegates and participants insights of world-renowned personalities and authors on tolerance and pluralism. The works and publications penned by individuals unfold various inspirations to build a tolerant society, thereby bridging the knowledge gap for better understanding as to why an intolerant society does not have a place in humanity.
As the global audience looks into UAE for its commitment to building a global tolerant society, they too can participate by sending their questions to Summit speakers or by sharing their own thoughts on topics discussed during the Summit. Tolerance Tube will be broadcasted on YouTube so that people from all over the world can take part in the process of building a global tolerant society.
