Kyoto, Kyôto

This morning we join together to share stories of the triumph of courage and integrity over fear and discrimination.

We embrace a vision for our communities where our differences are viewed, not as weakness, but as strength; a society, not of exclusion, but of inclusion; a world not of bullying and hatred, but of kindness, compassion and understanding.

Creating a culture that fosters creativity and innovation demands diversity: of opinions, experiences, people and ideas.

Only by celebrating the richness of humanity that surrounds us, can we truly call ourselves global citizens.
