Premier's Award for Community Harmony

The Premier’s Award for Community Harmony recognises the outstanding achievement of an individual or organisation that has developed intercultural or interfaith programs, strategies or activities. With the latest Australian census revealing Victoria to be the most multicultural region in the world, initiatives which break down stereotypes and promote cross-cultural understanding are vital for community harmony.

This award shines a light on those who are helping Victorians from diverse communities to identify and strengthen their shared values.
