As more and more migrants and refugees make Australia their home or come to visit as a student or business person they have a need to establsih links with people from similar backgrounds to give them a sense of belonging in a new environment. At the same time there are multiple groups working fo rsimilar cause sometimes totally unaware that there are other groups with similar interests and united they can work better. We proposed to create an interactive forum which provides information and acces to different community organisations and resources available for individuals and communities at state level. Each community is represented by a tree and I am sure in no time we will see forests emerging through all states comprising strong trees with new and emerging communities as seedlings.
