Action for Refugees Conference

6th Jul 2017, 9:00am - 4:15pm

Creative Edge

We are delighted to invite you to this important, free, one day event organised by staff and students in the Faculty of Education at Edge Hill University with the support of I4P

The conference will provide an opportunity for delegates to increase their knowledge and understanding of the refugee crisis

A unique element of the event will be a live link to a refugee camp in the town of Alexandria, Northern Greece

This will include questions and discussion with key workers and residents in the camp. We invite you to email your questions for the camp to mike.stoddart@edgehill.ac.uk prior to the event. You should enter ‘Question for the Action for Refugees Conference’ in the subject line of your email

Delegates will be able to learn first-hand regarding

  • Relevant research undertaken by academic colleagues
  • The work being done by agencies working with refugees
  • Practical support provided by staff and students to refugees and those working in response to the crisis

Workshops will support staff and students of the Faculty of Education to better able to meet the learning requirements of refugee learners

The overall aim of the conference is to provide a multi-faceted, positive, response to the refugee crisis that results in a greater understanding of practical support for those involved.
