Refugee Week 2012

Event date: 
18 June 2012 - 12:00am - 24 June 2012 - 11:59am
Event location: 

Refugee Week is a time to celebrate the contibution that refugees and asylum seekers make to the UK and to raise awareness about the problems they face.

Crossing the Border

You will need:

  • copies of the ‘Crossing the border’ form (download below), one for each Pioneer 
  • pens
  • a border (eg a desk, doorway, counter)

Ask for two volunteers and brief them that they’re border control officials. They should stand / sit at the border and pretend not to understand any questions asked them by the group. They should only allow people to cross the border when they’ve filled in their form in ‘squiggle language’, but are not to explain that this is the correct way to fill in the form. 

Practical information and advice on hosting a delegation

Here is a Q & A with Paul from Brighthelmstone, whose district hosted a delegation of asylum seekers several years running, and Fleur from Woodcraft Folk Scotland, who brought two asylum seeking families to Global Village.

Right to Refuge campaign materials

The TREE Communications Group, who run Woodcraft's Right to Refuge campaign, have created a leaflet about refugees and asylum seekers in the UK, full of ideas on how we can help them. They've also created a postcard with simple messages about the Right to Refuge campaign.
