Today we celebrate the international day of cultural diversity. Since the very start, cultural diversity has been at the core of the European project. Unity in diversity is the motto of our Union, because Europe has never been just one but many. It is thanks to our cultural diversity and our commitment to dialogue that for the last 60 years we have been able successfully to face new challenges and obstacles, to change and progress.
Aujourd’hui, nous célébrons la Journée mondiale de la diversité culturelle. Depuis le tout début, la diversité culturelle a été au cœur du projet européen. L’unité dans la diversité est, d’ailleurs, la devise de notre Union car l’Europe n’a jamais été une mais plurielle.
