Event - Advancing Community Cohesion Conference

We are delighted to have been invited to speak at Advancing Community Cohesion Conference. The paper entitled ‘Ageing in Australia - a Time of Exclusion for Many’ will be presented by Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing Manager, Ljubica Petrov.

The Conference will bring together Australian and international delegates to consider the broad range of challenges to social cohesion. Delegates will include government ministers and senior government officials, academics and researchers from universities and research centres, leaders and practitioners from the private sector and civil society, as well as religious leaders and scholars. The sharing of expertise, experiences and lessons learned at the Conference will focus on identifying solutions to the challenges which can inform policies and strategies, and ultimately facilitate better functioning communities at all levels.

Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing acknowledges and pays respect to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, on whose land this website was developed. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their ancestors and elders, both past and present and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We hope our work contributes to the wider project of respect and recognition between cultures in Australia. Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing receives project funding from the Australian Department of Health to administer the Partners in Culturally Appropriate Care (PICAC) program in Victoria.
