About this event

  • Event lasts 1 hour 30 minutes

What do you know about refugees? Who are they? Can you spot them in the crowd? Should you treat them differently?

Did you know that they carry in themselves part of their home identity? Is their country beautiful? How did they live back home? What are they proud of? What do they miss most?

Why did they relocate? What drove them to another country? Are they still connected to the homeland? What did the local community bring them to provide help?

What does it mean to be connected to Ukraine in the challenging 21st century?

It is a difficult conversation but definitely a worthwhile one, so come along and bring your friends. During the event you will be able to learn about what is happening in Ukraine today with insights from real people about their experiences, worries, hopes and expectations.
