The concepts of unity and diversity of the human race should be part and parcel of any education initiative. Like the yin and the yang in Chinese tradition, unity and diversity are complementary and inseparable. The yin/yang theory is the theory of complementary opposites such as night and day or summer and winter. Despite the immense diversity of humankind, there exists a profound underlying unity in human consciousness. And what distinguishes unity from uniformity is precisely humanity’s diversity. Unity is oneness. Uniformity is sameness.

Promoting the concept of unity in diversity is developing a sense of world citizenship and cultivating a sentiment of love for all humanity. Humanity being an indivisible whole, it is responsible for each of its members who, in turn, are responsible towards the whole.
