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

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.
