Over the past 10 years, the Australian Government has demonstrated a commitment to conflict prevention and violence reduction, but we can do more. We MUST do more.
Australia and the rest of the global community are not keeping pace with the growing number of humanitarian crises - the majority of which are caused by human conflict.
We know that there’s no point just WISHING for world peace, we must DO something to make it happen. The Peace on Earth Pledge has 10 practical steps we can all take to build peace in our everyday lives as well as promote conflict prevention around the world.
In 2020 let's do more than wish for world peace. Join with everyday Australians
Everyone has the right to be Safe and Free but right now, more people are displaced around the world than at any time in recorded history.
Protracted conflicts and natural disasters (both exacerbated by climate change), dominate the emergency needs of millions of people around the world.
These crises unfairly impact women and children. So for World Vision, our humanitarian aid, development and refugee policies cannot be seen in isolation from each other.
This is the biggest humanitarian challenge of our time and it's the poorest countries which are impacted the most. Developing countries currently host 84 per cent of the world’s refugees.
Ask the Australian Government to show compassion and leadership for millions of displaced people here and around the globe!
The Uluru Statement from the Heart calls for important structural reforms to establish a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution and to establish a Makarrata Commission to supervise a process of agreement-making between governments and First Nations. It calls for truth-telling about our country’s history.
World Vision stands alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples supporting their calls for change. We know that building relationships and empowering Indigenous Australians to shape their children’s futures will create sustainable change for their communities.
World Vision is walking with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to create the future they want for their children, families and communities.
With every seed sown, and its promise of growth.
World Vision is for Australian Aid. Are you?
The climate crisis is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. The poorest and youngest people in the world are the least responsible for the emissions causing global warming but are being the hardest hit by climate change impacts.
World Vision Australia has deep concerns over the development, economic and humanitarian implications of a changing climate. As a child-focused organisation, we believe that sustainable child wellbeing and human development depends on a healthy natural environment.
World Vision stands in solidarity with young Australians who are strongly calling on the Australian Government to take more action in this climate crisis.
The protection and development needs of children is not currently a priority for Australian aid.
Children not only make up half the world’s poor, but they are also individuals with rights, citizens, consumers, the human capital of tomorrow dependent on adults for support, protection and for their welfare.
Deliberately investing in children early and monitoring the impact that Australian aid has on children will enable us to strengthen our contribution to the attainment of children’s rights and to the success of the Sustainable Development Goals.
World Vision Australia calls on the Australian Government to put children at the heart of our aid program.
