Harmony Day March 21



Harmony Day is held every year on 21 March to coincide with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.  The continuing message that ‘everyone belongs’ encourages people to participate in their community, respect cultural and religious diversity and foster a sense of   belonging for everyone. Harmony Day is our nations day to celebrate Australia’s diversity – a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home.  It’s about community participation, inclusiveness and respect—a time to reflect on where Australia has come from, while also recognising the traditional owners of this land. Cultural diversity is in Australia’s national interest, building our productivity and enriching our lives. Harmony Day provides an opportunity to celebrate and recognise the benefits and potential that cultural diversity brings.  Australia’s cultural diversity remains one of our greatest strengths and is at the heart of who we are as Australian’s.
