International Day for Tolerance, observed in November, is an annual observance declared by UNESCO in 1995 to generate public awareness of the dangers of intolerance.
The United Nations has launched a new campaign to promote tolerance, respect and dignity across the world. TOGETHER is a global campaign that aims to reduce negative perceptions and attitudes toward refugees and migrants, and to strengthen the social contract between host countries and communities, and refugees and migrants.
In 1995, to mark the United Nations Year for Tolerance and the 125th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi, UNESCO created a prize for the promotion of tolerance and non-violence. The UNESCO-Madanjeet Singh Prize for the Promotion of Tolerance and Non-Violence rewards significant activities in the scientific, artistic, cultural or communication fields aimed at the promotion of a spirit of tolerance and non-violence.
The awareness color for Religious Tolerance is Purple.
