The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization or UNESCO's Member States adopted a Declaration of Principles on Tolerance. Among other things, the Declaration affirms that is neither indulgence nor indifference. It is respect and appreciation of the rich variety of our world's cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human. Tolerance recognizes the universal human rights and fundamental freedoms of others. People are naturally diverse; only tolerance can ensure the survival of mixed communities in every region of the globe.
"The pure and virtuous concept of “Tolerance”, is showing respect, dignity, and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world's cultures, articulations of expression, and manner of human."
