AFGHAN-AUSTRALIAN CONFERENCE

AIM


Taking place in Adelaide, the theme of this conference is
'Issues affecting Afghan-Australians and creating solutions'. 

 

The Afghan-Australian Conference is a one of a kind platform which aims to promote education, critical thinking and unity.
The conference will serve to unite the Afghan-Australian community across the national level by encouraging collaboration within existing networks and organisations. 
The purpose of this conference is for participants to leave the program with in-depth and sound knowledge of the issues the Afghan-Australian diaspora face.
As equally as important, participants will collaboratively brainstorm how they can make a real difference to the improvement of these issues. 

 

TOPICS

MENTAL HEALTH
Identifying mental health problems within our community
How can we break the stigma around mental health within the Afghan-Australian community? What are the causes? How can we educate our wider community on this growing problem?

DIASPORA HOMELAND DEVELOPMENT
 How can we help those back home in Afghanistan?
What are the current methods and limitations? How can we bring the community together and have a unified and more efficient method?

SETTLEMENT AND INTEGRATION
Settlement and Integration into Australian Society
Is discrimination a barrier to settlement and integration? How do we bridge the cultural gap, especially for the elders, and do we pick up one culture over the other? What implications will this have on loss of the Afghan culture in Western societies?
