About

Too often, international and domestic conferences about forced migration lack representation and inclusivity, and present refugees as passive recipients, not as potential change-makers and innovators.

To mark World Refugee Day on 20 June 20 2020, together with their partners, Kiron is hosting the Virtual Refugee Conference – AMPLIFY NOW!. The inaugural conference theme is elevating new learning and strengthening communities. They will bring together refugees, NGOs, academics and employers for talks, discussions and collaborative and results-oriented exchange. As a part of the Virtual Refugee Conference AMPLIFY NOW!, they are launching the Impact Prize to identify solutions that empower refugees.
