Zayed Tolerance Pledge has been launched by His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Chairman of the Supreme National Committee for Tolerance. This campaign aims to boost the values of coexistence and tolerance which have been established by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the United Arab Emirates.
The Zayed Tolerance Pledge also shows how tolerance is deeply ingrained within the culture of the nation as well as in its residents and citizens. This campaign promotes solidarity and cooperation in the community. At the same time, it creates opportunities for cultural dialogue to take place between the United Arab Emirates and other nations around the world peacefully for the promotion of pluralism and diversity.
Sheikh Abdullah has invited all the segments of the society to participate. This includes the universities, schools and other institutions all over the United Arab Emirates.
The pledge also confirms the position of the UAE as the global capital when it comes to tolerance.
