Mayors of Dublin & Barcelona

As first Citizen of Dublin and on behalf of the City council I would like to state clearly that Dublin is a city that says NO to Racism and Discrimination. Our One City One People Campaign that we run each autumn along with our work with Intercultural Cities, most recently amplified in the hosting of the Council of Europe Milestone Conference here in Dublin, clearly shows our commitment to standing up to discrimination of any kind. Our city is one that is welcoming open and diverse, one that has benefitted from this diversity advantage and is more innovative, creative and cohesive as a result. We still have problems in areas where exclusion and discrimination exist and we are committed to continuing to work on reducing this through education, equality and diversity training and promotion of inclusion. We are delighted to support UNITED and the European ACTION Week Against racism in March that will coincide with the celebration of our country’s culture on St. Patricks Day.
