Refugee Alternatives: Growing Australia's Role in Global Refugee Resettlement

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Australia’s 2020–21 refugee program was the smallest it’s been in 45 years – just 5,947 visas were granted. This is grossly inadequate to meet the growing number of refugees in urgent need around the world. We know Australia can do better for refugees and people seeking asylum. 

In our first Refugee Alternatives webinar of 2023, we explore Australia’s role in resettlement against a global backdrop of increasing need. Our speakers will shed light on how increasing Australia's refugee intake and resettlement pathways will enable a more humane response to political and environmental crises while enriching communities across the country.

Featuring our speakers:

  • Fatima Yousufi, Captain and Goalkeeper for the Afghanistan Women’s Soccer Team
  • Louna Ghawi, ANZ Co-Director at Talent Beyond Boundaries
  • Abang Anade Othow, Author and RCOA Ambassador
  • Paul Power, CEO of Refugee Council of Australia

This is a free event.
