PEOPLE AND GROWING

Support Dundee

As a foreigner working in Dundee I am most touched by Dundonians’ intrinsic desire to improve their communities by working together.
The Dundee Dance Partnership is an example of this and a model to follow in other areas.
Dundee promotes social and cultural exchanges in every corner of the city, all in a humorous and light-hearted way but without trivialising the impact of such a conversation.
Dundee symbolises the slogan “working together for an equal and better future”, embracing the challenges that such a lofty cause might entail.
