Invitation to REfugee Response Seminar

The Danish Guides and Scouts with the support of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) – European Region and Messengers of Peace (MoP) invite you to join REfugee REsponse Seminar.

The seminar will take place in Copenhagen – Denmark 27th – 29th of November 2015.

Reaching out to refugee children and young adults
Nearly 600,000 refugees and migrants fleeing war or seeking new lives have reached the European Union (EU) by sea. The refugee and migrant crisis is a challenge for all European countries, their civil society organizations, and their policy makers.

Confronted with this situation, many National Scout Organizations (NSOs) and Associations (NSAs) as well as Civil Society Organizations, are struggling how to react to this crisis. Most of us are hesitating because we are in doubt, how best to reach out to children and young refugees and legal migrants.

Civil society makes the difference
To address this challenge, the Danish Guides and Scouts, with the support of the European Scout Region and Messengers of Peace, is organizing a seminar, where scouts and youth associations from all over Europe can meet and share experiences, 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.
This website will be continously updated.

Our joint efforts will make a difference and contribute to creating a better world.refugee
