The IFS Conference 2020 will be held at the Aerial Function Centre (UTS) in Sydney on 12-14 August 2020.

The theme for the Conference is "Social Justice - The Unfinished Journey" and will bring together Australian Neighbourhood Houses and Centres Association (ANHCA) members from around the country, strategic partners and a delegation of International Federation of Settlements and Neighborhood Centers (IFS) members from all over the world. 

The Conference aims to foster renewed thinking and dialogue about our sectors role in a complex world, gaining insight in to social justice challenges and how we can proactively respond to these in our practice and in our advocacy.

Organised for and run by a network of international Settlements and Neighbourhood Centres, the goal of the Conference is to:

  • share social justice-oriented resources

  • Inspire, challenge, and equip us for the journey ahead.
