So, What is exactly is a #RefugeeWeek?
Refugee Week was established in 1986 and is held annually in June. It intends to celebrate the contribution of refugees to their migrated nation and encourage a better understanding between communities.

The purpose of a #RefugeeWeek is to peak annual activities to raise awareness about issues affecting refugees and celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees to the society and nation they sought asylum in.

The theme for 2020 is ‘The year of welcome’. Despite a global pandemic, Global Youth Parliament - Australia will be celebrating virtually by holding a webinar to show connectedness and raise awareness.

According to the Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA), 65 million people are now forcibly displaced globally – including more than 22 million refugees. We need countries like Australia to step up and support these vulnerable people.
