World Refugee Day
On June 20 every year, the world celebrates World Refugee Day. This year’s events will focus on the topic of the right to seek safety. Everyone around the world has the right to seek safety – no matter where they come from and when they have to flee
Anyone, wherever he is, and at any time has the right to seek safety.
World Refugee Day is a global day designated by the United Nations in honor of refugees around the world, and falls on June 20 each year. This day highlights the strength and courage of people who are forced to flee their homes to escape conflict or persecution. World Refugee Day is also an occasion to mobilize sympathy and understanding for their plight and recognition of their determination to rebuild their lives.

Anyone: Regardless of who they are, people who are forced to flee must be treated with dignity. Everyone has the right to seek protection regardless of their identity or beliefs. It is a non-negotiable matter, since it is a human right to seek safety.
Wherever it is: Regardless of their origins, people forced to flee should be welcomed. Refugees come from all over the world, and to escape harm, they may board planes, boats, or leave on foot, but their right to seek safety remains a constant wherever they go.
At any time: No matter when they were forced to flee, protection remains a right of theirs, and whatever the dangers – whether war, violence or persecution – everyone deserves protection and everyone has the right to safety.
