Creating Inclusive Cities (Belgium but Online)

EventsCreating Inclusive Cities: Everyone can make a difference, International Association of Professionals in Humanitarian Assistance and Protection (PHAP), Brussels, Belgium. Webinar on June 18, 2020, 14:00-15:30 CEST.

More than 61 per cent of the world’s refugees and 80 per cent of internally displaced people live in urban areas. The role of towns, cities, counties and provinces in creating inclusive communities and promoting hope has never been as important. They offer safety and shelter and can enable access to local services, education and job opportunities.

The Global Compact on Refugees aims to implement a more holistic approach in responding to refugee displacement and recognizes the important role that local authorities play as first responders to large-scale refugee situations.

Intercultural Cities (ICC) is a Council of Europe policy development and implementation programme that supports local authorities around the World in comprehensive approaches that are inclusive of migrants and refugees. Join the ICC and UNHCR on 18 June, 2020 at 2 pm CEST for a webinar two days before World Refugee Day to hear how cities in Europe are making their cities spaces where everyone can live in safety, become self-reliant, and contribute to and participate in their local community.
