GDF Unity in Diversity works in the field of citizen diplomacy and uses 'dialogue' to promote intercultural understanding. In collaboration with the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, our objective is to initiate, promote and foster cooperation among the global community in a range of intercultural initiatives that aim to establish a peaceful and safer coexistence.
