“Migration is an expression of the human aspiration for dignity, safety and a better future. It is part of the social fabric, part of our very make-up as a human family,” – Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General.
Migration. A word that denotes the traversing of boundaries in the search for greener pastures, for a better life and future.
We as a human species have been migrating ever since prehistoric times, in fervent search of food, water and safe shelter away from other predators. By deciding to explore outside our comfort zone, we have managed to broaden our horizons to expand our consciousness; thus develop effective survival skills and methods as we go along.
Many of us today are somewhat migrants at some point in our lives or in our family history. Take for example, the Chinese diaspora which occurred from the 19th century to 1949 in waves. Or forced migrants from Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea who fled to Egypt. All these refugees and asylum seekers traversed boundaries, often at peril, in their hopes to find a better future away from war, famine and political instability.
Boundaries mean nothing as we are all now in an interconnected world of the Information Age.
