Responding to Future Migration Forum
Join World Vision Ambassador Tim Costello to discuss the question: How are we going to build a better future together with the humanitarian entrants we are welcoming to our shores? Building a better future implies change to existing policies and practice. Such change will impact how we work with refugee families, local communities, governments, NGOs and the global community.
Refugees arriving in Australia bring with them a vast array of skills and a desire to contribute. How can we better facilitate their contributions towards building stronger communities? Government and NGO’s need policies and leadership that supports settlement and community integration and provides adequate responses to global dislocation.
Much more needs to be done about integration and settlement. We shouldn't dismiss community worries about refugee youth and we should be concerned about traumatised children and their families. With vision and ethical, effective leadership we can change. This event will focus on pivotal conversations around migration that are currently shaping our collective future.
