International Day for Tolerance: Building Peace in Kyrgyzstan

By 2050, the world population is projected to reach 9.9 billion – an increase of more than 25% from the current 2020 population of 7.8 billion. This already large number of people living in different countries, cultures, and with different religions beliefs requires some basic understanding, common values, mutual respect and… tolerance. To strengthen tolerance by fostering mutual understanding among cultures and people, the 16th of November is annually marked worldwide as International Day for Tolerance with organisations like Foundation for Tolerance International (FTI) in Central Asia.
