Cultural Diversity is one of our topics very simply because most cultures on a worldwide scale are under threat from a handful of dominant cultures. What does it take, for example, to convince children to be as proud and interested in the music and food of their grandparents as they are of what they see on television?

How Wikipedia around the World defines Cultural Diversity (add your language)

English: Cultural diversity is the variety of human societies or cultures in a specific region, or in the world as a whole.

Spanish (Cohesión social): Cultural diversity reflects the multiplicity and interaction of cultures that coexist in the world and, consequently, are part of the common heritage of humankind.
