The Future of Our Multi-Cultural Societies

In a global World, many of our cities and larger urban areas are in reality the true picture of a 21st century multicultural society. International cities like Amsterdam, Berlin, London, Moscow, New York, Shanghai and Singapore are the face of the new global societies we live in.

How will our perceptions on multi-cultural societies change in this next decade?

People naturally move to seek a better life; this occurred in the 19th and 20th century America, and Europe, but also on a local scale within countries, as our urban centers expanded.

This movement also shaped our perceptions on what a multi cultural society looked and felt like. New York is a good example, where the majority of migrants did mix, adopt the culture but in some cases formed their own mono-cultural areas- which we still consider today -"multi-cultural."

In the 21st century many of our multi cultural cities are patchworks of a mono cultural world, as migrants prefer to live within their own communities, and often bring their own customs with them. This has forced us to look at the real meaning of multi-culture, and evaluate how a successful this type of society should be viewed.

The acceptance of the local language and a marriage between members of both cultures are two essential ingredients of a multi-ethnic society. The fusion of the food we eat, and the clothes we wear also should be considered another ingredient to create a successful melting pot.

Economic change and welfare reforms are making many people who live in these urban areas question whether this really works, when in some cases new migrants and local people live apart from each other. This has divided Berlin, London and Paris, which all face pressure to rethink what really are the true aspects of a multi-cultural society?

What is the future of Multi-Cultural Societies?

The most successful people have actually embraced the idea of a global society. A surprisingly wide range of business & political leaders are married to a partner from a different country, speak several languages, and are at home in several cultures.

The least successful people are often mono-culturally minded, and prefer to stay in their own communities, whilst failing to accept other cultural influences. This reality is the borderline between a successful society, and one that becomes angry, divisive and discontent.

Multi-cultural societies do work in a global economy, but the perception of a 21st century society that embraces this ideal, should take in the account of encouraging the blending of all cultures into one melting pot.

The future of a multi- cultural society could be seen in the streets of our international cities in the future, and many people are watching how austerity measures will affect the cities of Berlin, London, and New York.
