Extracts from this document...


Benefits of diversity: P1 Diversity means recognising that everyone is different in some way. Importantly this also means 'valuing' the difference. We can say that we live in a multicultural society. This means that there are people from different countries and backgrounds are all living together, even though some people are not diverse towards each other. It does not stop us from living from a multicultural society. There are many benefits of living in a diverse society and in this essay I will be introducing different types of social and cultural benefits. Firstly, when having a large society, large communities, and different types of food, is an excellent way to get the taste of other countries. There are many different types of food which originate in different countries. It is important however, to know what countries food you are tasting, to see if you like it or not. Many people that are Hindu, Muslim and so on have their own foods and their own ingredient. Sometimes food doesn't taste the same as it would in the country that it originates from. For example, a family want to make pizza in Britain, it may taste delicious but it wouldn't taste as it would in Italy. ...read more.


Education focuses on every individual, student are now made to learn about other religions this is called Religious Education, this is a compulsory subject whom has to be taken in high school. Some students may not enjoy the subject, but when it comes down to talking about their own religion and background they tend to enjoy it. Learning about other religions in a small group allows, students from other religions talking about festivals and history, face to face. This allows debate to arise, as this is being conducted the students then get to compare religions and see how situations are different in other religions. For example, when it is the month of 'Ramadan' Muslims have to go through the month by fasting and only eating before sunrise and after sunset. Hindu's however, fast once every 2months. This allows both religions to interact with each other. The celebration of tradition and culture is now seen on all syllabuses in on form or another. Celebrating different cultures happens annually at high school, primary school, college and university. This shows it doesn't matter how old a student is, they will never be old enough to get involved with other religions. ...read more.


From this essay I can conclude, that having a multicultural society is beneficial to us in many different ways. Firstly, with out the arts in there would be no theatre plays, we wouldn't know about what really happened on Diwali and Eid, but thanks to the modern arts we know what it means. Trying different types of food from different countries is an excellent way to get to know other countries, as you can find out what the native crops are. The source of education is important to every student as for those who don't want to know about religion have to find out about it as now a days subject like religious studies is compulsory, also the fact that learning a language could been you could visit the home country and speak face to face with others. I believe, it may be hard for people to get to know other religions but being tolerant to each other allows individuals get involved with other religions more easily as it opens up doors. Overall, social cohesion is what it all comes down to, sticking together as a group in society. The modern world would not be what it is without people not being able to allow themselves into other religions. ...read more.
