"Sing, dance, resist through art, joy, faith and love. Resist... be reborn"
White Eagle

Refugee Week 2020 is almost three weeks away, and we’re excited to be writing with a range of ways you can get involved.

Running from 15-21 June, the first-ever virtual Refugee Week is an invitation to come together across borders and distance to celebrate our interconnectedness and imagine a different world.

We've pulled together resources and ideas for how you can join us on our new Refugee Week website.

Among them you'll find the Refugee Week 2020 Organiser Pack, which has everything you need to start planning your virtual Refugee Week event. and the Children & Young People’s Activity Pack, which is full of creative activities, films and learning resources that can be done at school or at home, for children of all ages.
