"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

Why UAE?

The stability, peace and prosperity that the United Arab Emirates is renowned for is a reflection of the values that the founding fathers of the nation, including the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, embedded in the society.


More than the mega projects, high-rise buildings and impressive infrastructure in the country, it can be most proud of the fact that tolerance exists in the day-to-day lives of people from various backgrounds who live and work together in building a future for the next generation – one that is without fear, conflict, and discrimination.

 

 

Indeed, the UAE is a shining example of inclusion and tolerance, as evident in the co-existence of more than 200 nationalities in the country, living harmoniously and peacefully. It adopts a policy of openness and is a welcoming society that focuses in the core values that all religions and cultures have in common.

The World Tolerance Summit is the biggest gathering of government leaders, key figures from the public and private sectors, peacekeeping ambassadors and change-makers from around the world who aim to discuss the great importance of tolerance, peace, equality, and to celebrate diversity amongst people from all walks of life, regardless of varying political views, cultural and religious backgrounds.

WTS 2018 will take place in Dubai, a melting pot of many expatriates from around the world, and is held in line with the International Day for Tolerance in November as declared by the United Nations.

The 2-day interactive summit will engage international thought leaders, decision-makers, and influencers in thought-provoking discussions in technology, social innovations, and global networking can play an important role in creating a conducive environment to bring about positive change in people’s lives.

Through a wide array of activities, it will delve deep into the ways by which individuals, organizations and nations can be open-minded, understanding and accepting of others’ opinions and beliefs in order to have a peaceful co-existence and cooperate in generating new ideas to build a prosperous and sustainable future.

This limelight event is a reflection of the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to convey the UAE’s message of love and tolerance to the 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


World Tolerance summit will be held on 15 - 16 November 2018 Dubai, United Arab Emirates
