AUE Viewing of ‘Global Interactive Summit on Refugees & Displaced Peoples’

In late January, The Salvation Army’s International Social Justice Commission will be hosting a ‘Global Interactive Summit on Refugees & Displaced Peoples’ “to mobilise people of faith to engage with one of the greatest humanitarian crises of our age – refugees and displaced people. The focus of the summit will celebrate what has been achieved and reflect on lessons learnt to guide future action.” You can find out more about the summit here:  http://www.tinyurl.com/ya5f6g7c

The summit will take place online, so you can take part from the comfort of your own home. However, we will be holding a number of ‘Viewing Sessions’ at Australia-friendly times. The majority of these screenings will be of sessions which have previously taken place at the ISJC, as these sessions take place in the early hours of the morning AEST. However, we will be joining in Session 3 (held at 11am, 30th Jan AEST) live from THQ, and we encourage you to join in Session 4 (held at 8pm, 30th Jan AEST) live from home.
