Education is a basic right and basic need for all people living in Switzerland. Nevertheless, some are faced with barriers when it comes to accessing education opportunities. Education is oftentimes an opportunity for refugees and migrants to integrate themselves in Switzerland, but adequate education support and a well-defined framework are lagging behind.
The thematic day “Refugees and Migrants – Education, Integration and Emancipation” is organised by Solidarité sans frontières SOSF and Schweizerischer Verband des Personals öffentlicher Dienste VPOD / Syndicat des services publics SSP. During discussions, presentations and workshops, the current situation of refugees and migrants concerning education in Switzerland will be critically reflected. Examples of best practice will be discussed as well.
The thematic day is held in German and French with simultaneous translation. All German or French speaking experts from education, politics and science as well as activists and other relevant actors are welcome to attend the event. You can register until 22 August 2019 per email to firstname.lastname@example.org or online www.vpod.ch/fachtagung-gefluechtete-bildung.
Date and time: 7 September 2019, 9.30-16.30
Location: Campus Muristalden Bern, Muristrasse 8, 3000 Bern
