Harmony Week

The importance of inclusiveness, respect and belonging for all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic backgrounds, is the focus of this year’s Harmony Week. 

This year Harmony Week will run from Sunday, 15 March to Saturday, 21 March 2020 with the theme 'Everyone belongs’. 

Saturday, 21 March is also the United Nations’ International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

An integral part of our national identity is our vibrant and multicultural Australian community which is reflected across Queensland and the Northern Territory – from the world’s oldest continuing culture of our First Nations peoples to our newest arrivals. 

Our union believes we all have a responsibility to create a safe, inclusive and harmonious nation for everyone who calls Australia home. 

TRAPSA and member action 

Teachers for Refugees and People Seeking Asylum (TRAPSA), co-founded by the Queensland Teachers’ Union (QTU) and our union, is an opportunity for members to take an active role in addressing the global refugee and asylum seeker crisis.  

As part of Harmony Week, members can show support by wearing orange, organising and attending Harmony Week events in their workplace and integrating Harmony Week activities in the classroom.

Members interested in taking a more active role in TRAPSA should visit the TRAPSA Facebook page or contact Aaron Watson at awatson@qieu.asn.au
