The Future website was created with thoughts of the future. It contains reflections on topics such as tolerance, respect and dialogue. The web page includes educational materials or links to them, which can assist educators in teaching about tolerance and multiculturalism, as well as information about interesting events, initiatives and ideas that focus on promoting tolerance and inter-cultural dialogue, and that take an active stand against xenophobia and racism.
