Virtual Refugee Conference
June 20 | 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) is organizing an interactive discussion with refugee students on the issue of hate speech against migrants and refugees in traditional and new media and ways to combat it. This event is part of the interactive online conference “Amplify Now”, organized by Kiron – Open Higher Education for Refugees, which is bringing together refugees, non-governmental organizations, academics, and the private sector in a unique global gathering to foster collaborative and results-oriented exchanges around the theme, “Elevating new learning and strengthening communities”.
The UNAOC session will introduce participants to UNAOC’s #SpreadNoHate initiative and include small-group discussions allowing participants to benefit from one another’s experiences and perspectives and leave the session with new ideas on ways to combat hate speech. Alumni of the UNAOC Fellowship programme and current UNAOC Fellows will facilitate the small-group discussions with refugee students.
