Refugee Day in 2016 in Bern

Refugee Days

Every year on the occasion of National Refugee Day we run an information and awareness-raising campaign. The campaign culminates in events throughout Switzerland. The National Refugee Day always takes place on the third Saturday in June.

We use various communication channels to draw attention to a specific problem or concern of refugees. We do so by means of posters, videos and print material as well as a digital campaign. The highlight is the programme of activities of our numerous partner organisations on National Refugee Day. With the participation of many volunteers, these promote mutual exchange and offer the opportunity to meet. Join us!

For event information visit the campaign website: 

Refugee Days 2023

This year the National Refugee Day will take place on June 17, the Churches' Refugee Sunday on June 18 and the World Refugee Day on June 20. 

Further information on the campaign and planned activities throughout Switzerland can be found on the campaign website. The campaign website will be launched mid-April and linked here.
