World Refugee Day Conference: ‘Building Communities Together’

20 June | 12:30 pm - 5:30 pm

World Refugee Day Conference: ‘Building Communities Together’

It’s official! We’re excited to announce our conference event for the World Refugee Day. Join us!

The culmination of months of building synergies within the Malta Refugee Council, the Conference will invite participants to jointly pave the way for more welcoming and embracing communities.

Our discussions will delve into a myriad of pertinent topics: from experiences of young refugees to the diverse experiences of those grappling with mental health issues and disabilities. We will also explore refugee political engagement as a key tool towards inclusive dialogue and representative communities.

The conference will be hosting two parallel workshops focusing on essential aspects of community-building: ‘Communities of Diverse‘ and ‘Communities of Politically Active‘. The first workshop will delve into the diversity within refugee communities, examining various needs, strengths, and human experiences. The second workshop will discuss approaches to strengthening the political relevance of refugees, such as through civic empowerment, representation, and electoral participation. Upon registration, you’ll have the opportunity to select your preferred workshop.

‘Building Communities Together’ is proud to join the lineup of the Refugee Week Festival 2024, with ‘Home’ as this year’s theme.
