Australia is a relatively new country. As such, it has grown and prospered by embracing new cultures and diversity. Today, Australia has a multicultural society with an increasing number described as CALD or culturally and linguistically diverse. Australians, on the whole, are welcoming, respect all cultures, and help protect people’s rights. So, what are human rights and the impact of diversity on a country?
The Place of Many Cultures
Having many cultures helps us think of new ideas, grows our economy, and enriches each culture. To make this work, we must understand and respect each other. Moreover, embracing these differences makes people feel they belong here, which is essential in a country such as Australia.
Respecting Everyone’s Human Rights
In a country with many cultures, we must respect everyone’s rights. These rights are like rules for how we should treat everyone, regardless of origin. In Australia, we have a group called the Human Rights Commission. This group works hard to ensure everyone is treated the same, and we should support them.
Many Cultures and the CALD Community
Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) folks are something you see a lot in Australia. But, just like others, CALD people can have problems. Sometimes, these problems are about language or getting the services they need. Also, people might even mistreat them. So, we must make sure CALD people have their rights protected in everyday life, like at work, school or when using services.
Enjoying Many Cultures and Standing Up for Human Rights
So, as part of Australia, how can we help? We can stand up for everyone’s rights and enjoy different cultures. Enjoying many cultures is not only about accepting them but also knowing them. In addition, we can stop people from treating others badly because of their race, make men and women equal, and help the elderly and the LGBTQ+ community. After all, each small thing we do will help make Australia a better place.
Human Rights For Everyone
In short, having many cultures is what makes Australia special. So, protecting everyone’s rights makes sure all these cultures can live together happily. By enjoying different cultures and protecting people’s rights, we can ensure Australia is a friendly and welcoming place for everyone.
