Refugee Week day 5: Insightful discussion, Cate Blanchett and more

Did you get a chance to listen to our amazing global storytellers last night?¬† If you missed it, don’t worry, you can still watch it here.

Today’s official line up features a host of thought-provoking discussions.¬† First up, Refugee Week Event Partner Settlement Services International (SSI) present Foundations for Belonging, launching new research that shines a light on the social and civic dimensions of integration. Listen in to this lunchtime session to hear the perspectives of people who have lived the refugee experience first hand and their everyday experiences of welcome, participation and belonging – hosted by ABC’s Lydia Feng.

At 4pm, you can join UNHCR Ambassador Cate Blanchett in conversation with Australia for UNHCR Special Representative Marta Dusseldorp and Western Sydney community leader Mayor Chagai at this very special event.
