Event description

Description

This event is not just about the author and his book. It is more about valuable conversations around the topics of migration, multiculturalism, whole-life migrant experiences, employment, communities, participation, integration, meaningfulness, making it work for everyone, including generations to come.

Ephraim will share from his book as well as facilitate conversations around questions like:

  • Who is a migrant? How has the definition evolved?

  • What are the benefits of migration and living in a blessed country like Australia?

  • What are the challenges with employment and careers for migrants? Are there sustainable solutions?

  • What are the particular challenges with regards to family life, including marriages, children and youths?

  • How are migrants preparing for aging, retirement and generational dynamics?

  • What are the significances of social participation and involvements in communities?

  • How do we as a nation, make multiculturalism work for everyone?


Who should attend and participate in these conversations during these tours?

  • New and emerging migrants;

  • Multicultural families, school-aged children and youths;

  • Service providers including youth workers, age-care workers, with interests in multicultural clients;

  • Relevant government officials at all levels, including cultural development officers and policymakers:

  • Community leaders and their various committees and members especially those of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) backgrounds;

  • Non-migrants, students, locals and others interested in the topic of multicultural Australia.

About the Book:

Migrants are essential contributors to the success and growth of many countries. But they face a series of challenges before they can fully attain whole-life balance while integrating into their new countries. These challenges are real, and to some, they have become sources of worry and despair.

As such, each migrant needs all the help that he or she can get. This book provides that, and much more. It is a reflective guide about the beneficial aspects of migration, the social, economic and cultural challenges, as well as associated solutions. All of this is presented from a migrant’s point of view as someone that has walked the path. Ephraim is keen to share lessons learned so that it will be more comfortable and more rewarding for others, especially new, emerging and even established migrants.
