OUTLOOK Project, bringing together peoples and nations, strives to makes this world more kind and its representatives more attentive to each other. We sincerely believe that mutual respect is a key to dealing with many conflicts, troubles and misunderstandings of the world of today.

Especially for International Day for Tolerance our team has prepared a social project that urges to ponder once again an important issue of non-discrimination on ethnic grounds.

The Day for Tolerance was set by the United Nations Organization that seeks fostering tolerance through deepening of mutual understanding between cultures and peoples. This vital need lies in foundation of the United Nations Organization Charter as well as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In 1996 General Assembly suggested to member states annual celebration of an International day dedicated to leniency on 16 November by scheduling relevant events that target both educational institutions and wide public.

Daria Kariakina, orchestrator of the project: “Realizing that friendly relations between nations constitute an important factor of preserving peace and security in the world, our team suggested that Ambassadors, being representatives of other peoples and cultures, send a special message to society that discrimination on ethnical grounds, that unfortunately still takes place in our world, isn’t only a display of disrespect to honor and dignity of people with different origins but also a manifestation of own narrow-mindedness. We have to know more about others and bear in mind that each and everyone has equal rights”.

Initiative of participating in shooting of a video-address to citizens of our country in Ukrainian was supported by 29 diplomats among them heads of diplomatic missions of Australia, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Finland, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, Moldova, Palestine, Romania, Slovenia, Sudan, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, United Kingdom, Uzbekistan, Switzerland. Also Director-General of GDIP Pavlo Kryvonos, being a long-standing partner of OUTLOOK Project, took part in the shooting.

We really feel like one more time bringing attention of Ukrainian and global community to issues of tolerance towards representatives of national minorities, other peoples and nations. Ukraine is a multinational state where over 130 ethnic groups live. Representatives of other countries come to us in order to get education or work. It is necessary to shape sensitive attitude towards every ethnos.

Diplomats expressed their comments on significance of the event. Ambassador of Uzbekistan to Ukraine Alisher Abdualiev: “We agreed to take part in this project immediately because we want to urge people to be more attentive to one another, learn more about national distinctive features never to have a desire to judge or offend a person solely on grounds of ethnic origins. Symbolically, we, foreigners, spoke Ukrainian. Dialogue of cultures has to be built on such and similar examples”.

Ambassador of Slovenia to Ukraine Nataša Prah: “Discrimination on ethnic grounds is an awful misconception of modern times… Everyone should have equal right, equal access to social benefits. Everybody has to feel comfortable and secure in society. Respectful attitude towards representatives of different peoples has to be cultivated inside ourselves to be role models for others.”

Working in the sphere of cultural diplomacy, OUTLOOK pays special attention to forming interethnic dialogue. To this end our team annually, together with the State Library for Children and Youth, holds insightful lectures for students of leading high educational institutions thus attracting attention to ethnic diversity of our country and entire world. This year we decided to diversify our activities. We hope that the video turned out both touching and inspiring!
