The launch event for Operation: Climate Control in July 2007 was a joint event with Alif-Aleph UK, "a group of British Muslims and British Jews committed to develop positive contacts between our communities". We feel that climate change is a great opportunity for people from different communities to come together and tackle an issue that affects us all equally.
These links are to organisations or initiatives working to bring together different communities, or help tackle issues related to ethnic minorities.
Alif Aleph UK is a group of British Muslims and British Jews committed to develop positive contacts between our communities as a "good practice model" for all communities in the UK who find themselves divided, usually by conflicts from abroad spilling over to divide us in this country.
Radio Salaam Shalom is an exciting new project to help encourage dialogue and understanding between the Muslim and Jewish communities in Bristol and beyond.
Portsmouth Ethnic Minority Achievement Service (EMAS) works in partnership with schools to reduce the level of under-achievement of ethnic minority pupils, including those with English as an Additional Language (EAL), to provide support for parents needing additional information, knowledge and translation in order to participate actively in the education of their children, and to develop provision for race equality and cultural diversity.
