Highlights

Steps of Solidarity

  • Context

    Every year there is a special theme to highlight the World Refugee Day to draw attention to the importance of shared efforts and solidarity. The 2019 Theme is #StepWithRefugees — Take A Step on World Refugee Day. Around the world, communities, schools, businesses, faith groups and people from different sections of society are taking big and small steps in solidarity with refugees. The aim is to engage with as many people as possible through social media channels, by encouraging participants to share their #StepWithRefugees challenge within their network and pass on the challenge to friends and family.

     

    The UN and its partner organizations use International days as occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity. In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, the objective of World Refugee Day is to show that the global public stands with refugees.
