What is FUSE 2016?

FUSE is a three-day national summit for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds involving a range of workshops, fun activities and team building, sharing of ideas and networking with young emerging leaders from across Australia.

At FUSE delegates worked together over the three days to develop ideas and explore key issues facing young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds in Australia.

On the final day, delegates made group presentations to Senator Zed Seselja, Assistant Minister for Social Services and Multicultural Affairs, advocating on behalf of refugee and migrant young people and presenting their voices direct to decision-makers in Australia.
