Author Anika Bauman and a panel of newcomer neighbours tell their stories of transformation shaped by the values found in this new book.
Becoming Neighbours tells a story of transformation where refugee claimants and their hosts flourish together.
Do you wonder how those of us in refugee-welcoming countries might engage the global reality of record numbers of people on the move due to forced displacement, even as we acknowledge our shared humanity with people seeking safety?
Is there a pathway beyond border politics, through cultural differences and language barriers, and within personal anxieties that leads us to truly become neighbours?
Join moderator Erin Goheen Glanville, author Anika Bauman, and four newcomers to Canada as they explore their personal experiences of transformation amid the five values highlighted in this story-filled, 80-page book.
Listen and consider your experience of welcoming newcomers, or being a newcomer yourself, in the light of the values discussed in this new book. Becoming Neighbours points to the real possibility of creating a world of welcome that is truly global while profoundly personal, sustained, and transformational.
