One of the best practices of intercultural interaction (at the one level with Montreal, Geneva and Madrid) is the creation of two parks in Odessa - Greek and Istanbul - as a symbolic communication of different cultures. This model has been proposed to develop a world strategy and implement a new model for managing cultural diversity for uniting society, democracy and respect for human rights.
