As the world becomes ever more interconnected, the way we understand each other's religions, politics and heritage will determine how well we adapt to future challenges. Events and research projects supported by this Grand Challenge have touched on the role of religious communities, urban migration, how social media is changing cultural understanding and the ways that technology is forcing traditional practices to evolve. Find out about some of the projects we have supported so far and what impact they have had.
The Grand Challenge of Cultural Understanding has supported UCL researchers to make new and intense collaborations across a whole range of disciplines at the university while supporting this research and scholarship to achieve real-world influence.
Cultural Understanding is one of six UCL Grand Challenges - find out more about how the whole programme works.
