World Kindness Australia
Executive Member of The World Kindness Movement’s International Council
World Kindness Australia (WKA) formed in 2011 and endorsed as the peak national body in Australia by the World Kindness Movement in 2014. WKA was the elected secretariat to the peak global body now serving a second term after initially being elected in 2012 at the 7th General Assembly in London. The campaign aims to ensure Kindness engages everyone, from our Classrooms to our staff rooms and from our Boardrooms to those residing in our corridors of Government. In Australia we saw the campaign as a way to address the fear associated to bystander behaviour in situations of bullying, however it has far more reach in a world which struggles to find the “Courage To Be Kind” and be the best it can be. The organisation has secured support and endorsements from 2 Australian Prime Ministers, Vice Regal, The Australian Commissioner for Human Rights, State and Federal Ministers including the Premiers of NSW and Victoria, Local government bodies representing 1.8 million residents including the City of Sydney and Gold Coast. This achievement was acknowledged in the NSW Parliament and in Her Excellency Professor Dame Marie Bashir Governor NSW 2014 Message and The Lord Mayor of the City of Sydney, Cr Clover Moore.
