1. What is meant by diversity?
The word 'diverse' means different and varied. People who living in towns and villages in UK are different and varied in lots of ways. Some categories include: gender, etnic group, age, culture / subculture, religion and class.
2. Describe the community you live in. Highlight some of the variations you may observe in terms of:
Personal, social and cultural identities.
I live in a diverse community. Some of the people I know from my community like walking some prefer driving cars, some like reading books and the other prefer watching tv, etc.
They have different faith; some are muslim and some are christians.
They are of different ages, from babies, through children, teneagers to adults.
They have many different lifestyles: some live healthly by eating right foods and exercising regularly, spend more time on a physical fitness, hygiene and diet regulations; they care about environment, they use technology sensibly. While the others are completely opposite: dont care about envrionent (e.g. by not recycling rubbish), don't care about their diet, use technologies exesively, etc.
