Have your say

Right now, the Government is writing a long-term plan (White Paper) for Australia’s foreign policy. This White Paper will guide the way Australia engages with the rest of the world.

It is vital that the Government listens to all Australians and develops a plan that reflects our views. This means it’s critical for people like us – including you and your friends and family – to have your say in shaping the kind of world we want to live in and the role Australia should play in making your vision a reality.

You can have your say today. Just take the 60 second #UpToUs survey to create a submission to the Government.

It’s Up To Us

Regardless of your political persuasion, we all know that 2016 was a time of global upheaval. Elections and referendums, and their surprising outcomes, highlighted that many people around the world felt that they hadn’t been heard by those in charge.

That is one of the reasons that the Campaign for Australian Aid, of which CBM Australia is a member, is bringing people together to proclaim that in 2017, it’s “Up To Us”.  #UpToUs aims to unite Australians in tackling global issues such as climate change, inequality, conflict, migration and poverty.  Together, we are harnessing people-power for a fairer world.

Tell your friends

What kind of Australia do you envision in the years to come? If we want Australia to be a good global citizen and leader on issues such as disability inclusion in development, it’s Up To Us globally-minded Australians to lead the way.

Please tell your friends and family that, together, we are powerful – encourage them to make a submission on Australia’s foreign policy White Paper that asks for a more sustainable, welcoming and compassionate country for all.
