Together We Are Better: An International Institute of Tolerance Initiative
The International Institute for Tolerance (IIT), a part of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, organised the "Together We Are Better" event in cooperation with the Dubai Sports Council and Dubai Police, with the participation of 60 citizens and residents of different nationalities and religions.
Through the event, held in celebration of the International Day for Tolerance, IIT reflected the positive effect of community partnership and how values of tolerance and communication between different cultures could help spread to a large audience through sporting activities.
The event, which was a yoga session held on the Tolerance Bridge in Dubai by experienced trainers helped enhance the participants’ inner peace by teaching various exercises that link the mind and body, combining different body positions, relaxation techniques, meditation, and different methods of breathing. The event also helped promote acceptance and respect for others in light of pluralism and diversity among the community. IIT aims to establish the values and principles of tolerance amidst the various segments and spectrum of society through such events.
