Cities are on the front line of welcoming refugees and providing them with immediate and long-term assistance which can enable refugees to thrive. Each year on 20 June, the world celebrates Refugee Day and the Intercultural Cities Network campaign together to help focus attention on those who are fleeing conflict or persecution.

This year the theme for the joint Intercultural Cities campaign is solidarity. We wish to acknowledge the city to city support we have seen across Europe over the past months, as well as the welcome that cities provide to refugees.

Below you will find filmed testimonials, statements, and refugee stories from cities in the intercultural network who support each other #Cities2Cities and stand #WithRefugees.

Through their joint campaign, the Intercultural Cities continue to support the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) campaign to stand together #WithRefugees.
