Our paper aims to identify and systematize the values associated with the concept of ‘tolerance’. The main method used was the literature review. The literature review aims to highlight the values associated with tolerance at a global level. Our results consist of the identification and systematization of a series of values associated with the concept of ‘tolerance’, as well as the highlighting of the need to include preparation of teachers to work/teach in multicultural environments as one of the finalities of initial teacher training. Our paper is part of a doctoral project that aims to identify ways to increase tolerance at teachers and students by introducing intercultural education modules at various disciplines.
