Ethnic communities symposium held in Parramatta


April 28, 2018 by admin

A symposium about the relevance of ethnic communitiesis being held at the Park Royal in Parramatta over the next two days, starting today August 28 and continuing tomorrow, Wednesday, August 29.

Ethnic community leaders from around the state are expected to attend the Community Relations Commission’s Annual Symposium and they will all be asked to discuss the question: Are you relevant?.

The gathering will devote the first whole day to youth issues, discussed by youth leaders.

The Youth Day will tackle a broad range of challenges faced by young people including bullying, how to get heard and how to express social concerns.

The main day of the symposium will also deal with youth issues from a broader community perspective as well issues surrounding government-community cooperation, emerging communities, effective media relations and crime minimisation.

A highlight of the day will be the launch of two important publications dealing with religious instruction in the Australian context.

The two works are: My Religion, Our Country: A Resource for Islamic Religious Education in Australia and Serving in a New land: An Orientation and Appraisal for Religious Workers Coming to Australia.

The Chair of the Commission, Stepan Kerkyasharian, said: “these two publications will set important benchmarks for learning about religion, focussing on the interaction of religion with Australian law.”
