Event: Unity - Faculty for Social Wellbeing Conference
Date: Tuesday 17 November 2020
Time: 10:00 - 12:00
Venue: Online (see below)
With ever changing demographics, the rise of extremism and tensions amongst different social groups, the Faculty for Social Wellbeing is promoting a discussion on Unity. For this Faculty, the topic goes beyond upholding the rights of all Maltese citizens, but featuring the importance of integration of, and respect by and towards, minority groups and those residing in our country.
The Faculty for Social Wellbeing is using its annual Faculty Conference, where the Faculty selects a number of interrelated issues for discussion, with the aim of developing tangible recommendations for action that will be put to policy-makers and stakeholders in the area of social wellbeing, to highlight underlying topics which have implications on our National Unity. The inspiration for this year’s conference is the speech given at his inauguration in April 2019 by H.E. George Vella, President of Malta, who will be joining us throughout the event. We will be discussing the following topics:
- Taking our national symbols further
- Protecting our democracy
- Strengthening civil liberties
- Social mobility
The above topics will be addressed through presentations by experts and academics from the field of social wellbeing. This will be followed by an open dialogue to seek to establish tangible solutions to these fundamental issues and find ways of improving the social wellbeing of all the individuals that make up our Nation.
The Annual Faculty Conference will be held on Tuesday 17 November 2020 from 10:00 – 12:00. Due to circumstances, we will be holding the conference online.
