Study Day #BuddiesWithRefugees

On 1 April a digital study day on the buddy programme as a complementary tool for the integration of refugees and newcomers will take place organized by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the Association of Flemish Cities and Municipalities (VVSG), the Association of the City and Municipalities of Brussels (BRULOCALIS), and the Federation of CPAS of the Union of Cities and Municipalities of Wallonia (UVCW).

To share experience and lessons learned in the field of migrant integration, this study day will offer sessions with experts, local and regional authorities, associations and buddies themselves. Also, politicians responsible for asylum and migration (from Belgian federal government) and integration (at regional level) will take the floor  discussing the added value and the limits of buddy activities. In the afternoon, thematic workshops will offer an exchange of best practices. 

Thursday, April 1 from 9:00-16:00 CET  The participation in this webinar is free, you can register for the event here
