First Global Refugee Forum
First Global Refugee Forum, 17 and 18 December 2019, Palais des Nations, Geneva Switzerland. It will focus on six themes: arrangements for burden and responsibility-sharing, education, jobs and livelihoods, energy and infrastructure, solutions, and protection capacity.
Related events will be held ahead of the Forum in Geneva, illustrating the vital role that cities and civil society organizations play in welcoming and including refugees. Public initiatives include the spectacular lighting of the city’s iconic Jet d’Eau and an exhibition of crafts by MADE51 – an initiative bringing beautiful refugee-made products to a global market.
