WALKING TOGETHER FOR UNITY
COTTON Tree Park will come alive with people celebrating diversity and multiculturalism for National Unity Week.
A walk will take place along the waterfront on October 27 from 10am to celebrate the diversity of our community.
It will allow people to express the belief in a welcoming and inclusive society by walking together with others, no matter who they are or where they come from.
The day will include market stalls, food vendors, children’s activities and musical entertainment from the Unusual Suspects and the Sweet Chilli Choir.
Walk Together is an amazing event, seeing people coming together and showcasing that we are a welcoming community, no matter where you come from.
Also the musical entertainment, guest speakers and market stalls will ensure there is something for everyone, according to Ruth Creffield convenor of Amnesty International Maroochydore.
Buddies Refugee Support Group, Welcome to Maleny and Amnesty International Maroochydore have come together to hold Walk Together Sunshine Coast to showcase the culture of welcome and unity.
It’s about celebrating cultural diversity, and offering a welcome to refugees, people seeking asylum and other migrants.
Walk Together MC Lisa McDonald said in being united, the importance of recognising, welcoming and celebrating diversity is paramount.
“Unity Week highlights these themes by inviting communities across Australia to walk together, eat together, learn together and play together. What started as a ‘Walk Together’ event back in 2015, has grown to include other ways for the Sunshine Coast community to come celebrate together.”
