Opening the doors to dialogue

World Refugee Day


Far too often we just talk about refugees - it is time to let people tell their own story.

The Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament is organising a unique project on World Refugee Day, 20 June, to create a global conversation and raise awareness about the situation of refugees around the globe.

We invite you to enter the Portal (container) placed in front of the European Parliament and come face-to-face with people in an identical space somewhere else in the world. The portal includes a sophisticated multimedia which will allow you to connect with refugees in different cities.

Open de deuren naar dialoog

Wereld vluchtelingendag 2017


De Europese groene fractie (Greens/EFA) in het Europees Parlement organiseert een uniek project op 20 juni naar aanleiding van  ‘World Refugee Day’. Het doel is om een mondiale dialoog op gang te brengen over de situaties waarin vluchtelingen op verschillende plaatsen in de wereld moeten leven.

Een gouden container zal worden geplaatst op de esplanade voor het Europees Parlement. Gesofisticeerde multimedia in deze container verbonden met vergelijkbare containers in verschillende vluchtelingenkampen, maken mogelijk om in dialoog te gaan met vluchtelingen in andere delen van de wereld.

Mensen in Brussel zullen dus direct kunnen communiceren met mensen in Jordanië, Palestina,  Duitsland of Irak; Ze kunnen met elkaar spreken, zingen of dansen, alsof ze zich in dezelfde ruimte bevinden.

De bedoeling is om een echte dialoog met vluchtelingen mogelijk te maken. Te vaak praten we alleen over vluchtelingen en praten we niet met hen en daarom is het hoog tijd dat we hen hun eigen verhalen laten vertellen. Onze hoop is dat het gouden container project wederzijds begrip zal doen groeien en gezamenlijke acties op gang brengen.
