Learn about innovative health and safety initiatives in Auckland and Vancouver that promote healthy living through community education and accessible programming that ensures new immigrants and their families are safe, sound, and empowered to seek solutions for their personal well-being.

Featured Good Ideas

  • In Auckland, WaterSafe Auckland (WAI) established the New Settler Water Safety Reference Group to address the over-representation of the migrant population in the regional drowning statistics. Their multi-lingual programme of community education initiatives mainstreams cultural interests alongside issues like drowning prevention, water safety promotion and public education.
  • In Vancouver, the Diversity Health Fair is a free community event that brings together representatives and volunteers from ethnic communities across the city to provide health care information to new immigrants in fun and easy to access ways. The focus of the fair is accessible information that promotes public health; its goal is too empower multicultural communities to safeguard their health and well-being through greater awareness and participation.
  • Making it work for you! Find out how these good practices could be replicated or adapted by your organization or in your own 'city of migration.'

Speakers

  • Lynn Moran, Executive Director, AMSSA (Affiliation of Multicultural Societies & Service Agencies), Vancouver, Canada
  • Stacey Willcox, Drowning Prevention Coordinator, WaterSafe Auckland, New Zealand
