Together in Bega

This week UNIC Canberra and the Cooma Multicultural Centre implemented the second phase of the UN Together Story Telling and media skills workshop, this time held in Bega, New South Wales.

Women from the Bega community joined with us in highlighting  many delightful and heartfelt stories which described individual  and communal efforts full of courage and determination.

The workshop was part of the overall global UN  Together Campaign which promotes respect safety and dignity for refugees and migrants.

“Our duty to the people we serve is to work together to move from fear of each other to trust in each other. Diversity in all its forms is an asset, not a threat.”

António Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations
