Creating cohesive, more inclusive communities
The public draft of The Australian Standard for Welcoming Cities will provide a best practice accreditation framework in cultural diversity and inclusion practices.
Welcoming Cities supports local councils and community leaders to leverage the ideas and innovation that come from being welcoming and inclusive. The Welcoming Cities network is built around:
Supporting local councils and communities to learn from each other and access resources, research, policies, and case studies.
Standard + Accreditation
Developing and accrediting The Australian Standard for Welcoming Cities to benchmark policy and practice in cultural diversity and inclusion.
Brokering meaningful multi-sector partnerships that foster a sense of belonging and participation for all members of the community.
Showcasing leading practice. A National Award, focused on comprehensive responses by Local Governments to welcoming efforts.
Over the next 35 years, migration will drive economic and skills growth in Australia. Migrants will contribute $1.6 trillion dollars to Australia’s GDP, and 10 per cent more to the economy than existing residents.
