About this event

If you’re a changemaker wanting to make a positive difference to the settlement journeys of resettled communities (people from forced migrant backgrounds - Quota, Convention, Family Reunification and people who seek asylum), register your interest in attending today. For resettled communities, Tūmanako means to wish for and hope for a better future for their families and communities in Aotearoa, after experiencing conflict, disaster, persecution, violence and violations of human rights in their past. The Summit will create a space for changemakers to turn hopes and wishes into solutions, support and services that enable all forced migrants to be self-sufficient and thrive in their new home. The Summit will support stronger relationships, partnerships and coordination for positive social change.

Programme:

16 June, 6pm-8.30pm Welcome Dinner (including launch of ARCC Tūmanako Table of Hope Model of Practice and keynote address)

17 June, 7.30am-9am Breakfast Panel exploring issues and opportunities

17 June, 9.00am -4pm Full day Summit (including: keynote address; 'Hear My Story' session with six resettled community members; Government lunch time panel; 'Reflecting on my practice' facilitated session for changemakers)

Who should attend:
