Refugee Week 2020



This year Refugee Week (15 – 21 June 2020) is an invitation to explore the theme of ‘Imagine’. Because when things feel stuck; when the old ways of doing things are no longer working, that’s what we need to do.

See the website for a full list of events, resources and activities

‘To imagine’ means to picture something you can’t currently see. To step beyond the current moment, and perceive something different. Rather than being a flight away from reality, imagination is sometimes the best response to it – the only way to get us somewhere new.

Maybe you’ll imagine a future where we’ve found new ways to care for our planet, transcend borders or protect human life.

Or perhaps you’ll imagine what it’s like to have to leave your family behind, or what your hometown might look like to someone walking its streets for the first time.

You can get involved by holding or taking part in an online Refugee Week event or activity, or doing one of the Refugee Week 2020 Simple Acts.
