Refugee Crisis Response: What Can Scotland Do?

Event organized by the Global Justice Academy

Venue: Lecture Theatre 3, Appleton Tower, The University of Edinburgh, Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9LE

This event provides an opportunity to see the short documentary produced by LIVED, entitled 'Learning to Swim', about Syrian children living in a refugee camp and other areas of Jordon. The event will also include speakers from a range of voluntary organisations discussing what they are doing to help those who have been forced to flee persecution and conflict. The audience will be invited to discuss what they might do to help those fleeing persecution, particularly in the context of the current situation in Syria and related refugee 'crisis', and be challenged to take individual or collective actions to help.
