Harmony Week

Everyone Belongs

Australia is one of the most successful multicultural countries in the world. Our cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths and makes Australia a great place to live.

An integrated multicultural Australia is an integral part of our national identity. All people who migrate to Australia bring with them some of their own cultural and religious traditions, as well as taking on many new traditions.

Harmony Week (17-23 March) celebrates such cultural diversity. It is about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.

Apartment living the preferred choice

Apartment living is the preferred option for many new-comers, with more than half of all apartment residents in Australia born overseas and speaks another language other than English at home.

The two million plus apartment residents are a true representation of Australia’s multiculturalism – they are all different. The only commonality of those living in strata is actually that they all live in strata.

The need for tolerance and respect, because of living in such close proximity to each other, and the inclusion of all residents together with a welcoming sense of belonging for all has never been stronger.

From our observations managing over 5,000 communities, the high-performers are those that promote harmony. Should tensions arise between residents, encourage the message of Harmony Week – inclusion, respect and belonging for everyone.

Strata Matters

Cladding fire risks have been known for years.

The fire at the Neo200 building on Spencer Street in the Melbourne CBD this week has eerie similarities to the Grenfell Tower disaster. Fortunately, instead of 72 people dead as at Grenfell, only one person was hospitalised for smoke inhalation.
