The study "Learning from the World: Good Practices in Navigating Cultural Diversity" documents the results of the international search for good approaches to dealing with cultural diversity conducted for the Reinhard Mohn Prize 2018. Since living together in diversity is a matter of everyday life, the focus of the study is on the local level. It describes in detail the strategies of six cities in Europe, Canada and the USA and presents exemplary projects for dealing with diversity in politics, business, education, the media and personal encounters.

The research shows that an attitude of acceptance and recognition of diversity, strategic political coordination and the creation of opportunities for encounter and dialogue are important factors for successful living together.
