Webinar on Supporting Refugee families in Cities
How can we best support refugee families in the cities? Find out in the upcoming webinar focusing on refugee children growing away from home.
On 23 November, UNHCR & Bernard van Leer Foundation, together with the support of PHAP will host a discussion to explore the elements that make cities good places for young refugee children to live and grow. We will discuss the promising tools, practices, and leadership examples emerging. We will hear from cities and discuss how cities can be empowered to pledge their support to refugee children and families in the run-up to the Global Refugee Forum in 2023.
The best way to bolster a child’s development is to support the people who care for them and ensure the environments and services around them will help them thrive. UNHCR estimates suggest almost one million babies were born into refugee life in the last three years. Many refugee children will live their entire childhoods in cities. To thrive, refugee children, like all children, need access to the services in their cities, including safe, affordable, and healthy housing and access to green space and play areas to move, explore and learn.
This webinar is free to attend.
