Connecting Cultures, established in London in 2004, is recognised by the United Nations Alliance of Civilisations as one of the worlds leading and most innovative civil society projects addressing the issue of intercultural dialogue between young people.

Endorsed by UNESCO in Paris and Doha, and working in close partnership with the Ministry of Education in Oman, Connecting Cultures takes groups of young people from the western and Arab world on intensive, five day journeys into the desert of Oman.

In an environment where mobile phones do not work, the young people are able to engage in undisturbed face to face dialogue, identifying shared values and exploring cultural differences. Connecting Cultures targets young people aged 17-24 who are potential future leaders and opinion formers in society.
