This year, nearly 600 000 refugees and migrants fleeing war or seeking new lives have reached Europe and the European Union (EU) by sea. Countries hardest hit by the economic crisis, like Greece and Italy, have also served as the main points of entry for migrants and refugees as border countries of the Mediterranean Sea. From Greece, many refugees and migrants travel overland through the Western Balkans to reach other EU countries.
The refugee and migrant crisis is a challenge for all European countries, their civil society organisations and their policy makers.
Confronted with this situation, many National Scout Organisations (NSOs) and Associations (NSAs) as well as Civil Society Organisations are questioning:
- How best to react to this flux of refugees and migrants in transit through their countries (Mediterranean roads, Balkans road);
- How best to Support refugees and migrants upon arrival in the local communities;
- And how best to reach out to children and young refugees so that they can be welcome in Scouting.
To address these questions, the Fællesrådet for Danmarks Drengespejdere (Danish Scout Council), with the support of the European Scout Region of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), is organising the #RefugeeResponseSeminar, where NSOs, NSAs and civil society organisations from all over Europe can meet and share experiences, as well as ideas and knowledge regarding appropriate responses to the refugee and migrant crisis. Participants will return home equipped with tools and concrete proposals for refugee and migrant support activities in their local communities.
So sign-up and participate! Our joint efforts will make a difference and contribute to creating a better world.
More information about the #RefugeeResponseSeminar will be shared next week.
