How do we create communities where everyone feels safe, connected and valued? Where everyone feels a deep sense of belonging and everyone can contribute?
We live in an increasingly globalised world and the transfer of people across the world is growing. That brings lots of amazing things into our world but also poses challenges. We need to keep coming up with great ideas to ensure we live happily together.
Communities are made up of lots of people from diverse backgrounds. Young people, old(er) people. New Australians and First Australians. Lots of religions and lots of voices. But cohesive communities don’t happen by accident. They need to be nurtured and grown, supported and empowered. There are some amazing ways to foster open and inclusive communities. Sport, art, food (yes!), music – these are all powerful ways to share and exchange, to bring people together, and to grow understanding of one another.
What’s your great idea to bring communities together and create a better Australia?
