Barack Obama, Ban Ki-moon and Desmond Tutu on the UN Alliance of Civilizations

US President Barack Obama, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Desmond Tutu, and leading global opinion-makers present a bold UN project.

The Alliance of Civilizations is an international effort to build the cultural conditions for peace between countries and within communities. It is driven by a vision of a world in which different faiths and cultures can not only live side by side in peace, but come together for the good of all humanity.

Launched by the UN Secretary-General in 2005, and co-sponsored by the governments of Spain and Turkey, today the Alliance is a thriving societal coalition of over 100 governments and international organizations, leading businesses, academic and research centers, civil society organizations, and faith groups, dedicated to building a more peaceful and tolerant world through working to implement concrete, on the ground initiatives and policies on youth, education, media and migration issues, which make a difference in communities.
