Dobrica Milovanovic: “Interculturalism is the best policy to achieve sustainable urban development”

On 18th August 2014, Mr. Dobrica Milovanovic, Congress member and member of the Governing Board of ALDA, took part to the Summer Academy of the Assembly of European Regions in Novi Sad, in Serbia.


“The Congress believes that interculturalism is the best policy approach to achieve social cohesion and sustainable urban development, as it actively promotes pluralism, justice and equal opportunities within local communities”, underlined Dobrica Milovanovic. “Over the past two decades, the Congress has adopted a wealth of proposals for intercultural action at the grassroots and has been actively involved in promoting multi- or intercultural and plurilingual societies” he added. “The Congress basis its action on the premise that, for democracy and for economic prosperity, we must find ways of living together that unite us while recognising our diversity – and we must do this starting at local and regional levels”.
