Australia, a country built on immigration.

 

It all started when the English immigrants came and made Australia an British colony. During the colonizing of Australia they encountered the Aboriginals, the native population. It is well known that Australia has been quite cruel and harsh against it`s native inhabitants over the years, nonetheless close to the 20th century, all this changed. Australia became one of the leading countries regarding multicultural politics.  Nationalities and religions from all over the world are now represented  and they are managing to live in coexistence with each other. 

 

How to manage multiculturalism is crucial for the well-doing of the people within the country. Australia has done several important actions along in making it`s country an multicultural-friendly nation. 

 

One solution is to strengthen the multiculturalism by hosting Harmony Day on 21 march each year. There they focus on not to judge indigenous people or immigrants based on the color of their skin and their belonging.

Hanna Lunn's insight:

This article from bbc.com shows how Madhvi Mohindra from India runs dance classes with traditional Indian dancing for local students in Sydney, Australia.

 

The world has become so globalized that an Indian woman can run a dance class with only Indian students in Australia. People move around and we take our culture with us when we settle somewhere new and a danceclass like this a clear proof of that.

Multiculturalism

To teach the importance of multiculturalism in the education system and at home.
Hanna Lunn's insight:

This video emphasizes the importance of teaching children from an early age to work together with people with a different background and culture than themselves. If children learn to cooperate with different people when they are young it will make future work relations easier. As the world becomes more and more global, being able to work well with other cultures will come in handy.

 

I found this video very interesting because I live in an area where it lives a lot of immigrants and people always come up with silly questions like "Is it hard being surrounded by immigrants everywhere?". This video explains WHY you can benefit a lot from being surrounded by various cultures, and I think we can learn a lot from watching this.
