MORETON BAY JOINS THE WELCOMING CITIES NETWORK

City of Moreton Bay has officially joined the Welcoming Cities network. Mayor Peter Flannery said Moreton Bay was a culturally and linguistically diverse city, with one in five residents born overseas and more than a third of residents having at least one parent born overseas.

“Council aims to be as inclusive as possible for all its residents regardless of background, age, gender, or ability,” he said. “Everyone deserves the right to feel welcomed in their community and joining the Welcoming Cities initiative is another step in that direction.”

Sebastian Geers, Welcoming Cities Manager, said the initiative set a national standard for cultural diversity, inclusion policy and practice in local government. “We are excited to work alongside City of Moreton Bay, known for its rich cultural diversity, to advance communities where people of all backgrounds can belong, contribute and thrive,” he said.

The Welcoming Cities membership aligns with Council’s Community Wellbeing Strategy - Connected Communities Action Plan.
