Refugee Cycle

by UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts
Saturday 29 June 2019, 10:00 - 16:00

There is considerable interest in the UK and across Europe in the process of the resettlement and integration of displaced peoples. Some of these people have ended up in Glasgow, which provides us with a chance to learn from their experience, as well as an opportunity to share our own local knowledge. UNESCO RILA believe that what is good for refugees is good for everyone, which is why they have organised an event to bring refugees, migrants and local communities together for a moment of inter-action. Participants will cycle a pre-determined route in small groups, accompanied by experienced ride leaders. At regular intervals along the route, there will be informative performances and activities by the UNESCO RILA Artists is Residence and UNESCO RILA partners. Central themes are (forced) migration, community building and hospitality.

Basic bike riding skills needed, but free bikes available on site (to be reserved in advance). Registration is necessary. Please book here. This is a FREE event.
