THIS IS A CALL TO ALL SELF ORGANISED REFUGEES AND OTHER ACTIVISTS: BE PART OF THE CONFERENCE PROGRAM! CONTRIBUTE YOUR IDEAS, PERSPECTIVES AND SKILLS! SEND IN YOUR PROPOSALS!
Refugees, migrants, supporters and activists with different backgrounds will gather for three days at Kampnagel Theater in Hamburg to discuss, network and share their knowledge about self-organisation under the heading “The struggle of refugees. How to go on? Stop war on migrants! – INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF REFUGEES AND MIGRANTS – 26-28th February 2016″
This self-organized assembly seeks to empower existing networks of refugees and to develop new network-structures, as well as to create the possibility to analyze the current situation in Germany and Europe. Our aim is to focus on what can be done together and to give room to as many voices, experiences and perspectives as possible.
Besides curated discussion sessions# and open spaces for spontaneous workshops and gatherings, the conference program will also include time slots reserved for your proposals.

We are looking for persons and groups who are ready to give inputs, encourage dialogues, motivate knowledge-sharing and guide exchange of experience.
