Friend Crisis

BY PETRA KAI KORMENDY
@ VOL 27 ON NOV 23, 2015

"Refugees are coming to Maastricht ... we want to make them feel welcome."

In "Friend Crisis" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht, Vol 27, progressive chaplain Petra Kai Kormendy explains that there is no such thing as a "refugee crisis" but rather a crisis of friendship. At Refugee Project Maastricht, refugees are called friends, and from that idea a new dialogue can open up about our relationships to the situation and to each other as humans.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, December 1, 2015.

How I became a refugee

BY HAROON REZAIE
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

We have all seen the images of migrants arriving in Europe, but have you met one? Haroon Rezaie and his family took the risk and journeyed to the Netherlands. Now he wants to share his experience in order to give people a vision about the life of refugees and why they became a refugee. This could be either that they came by favour or they were compelled by the living circumstances to leave everything behind and start life again in a new place. This is the ultimate story to inspire perseverance and determination in any situation.

How we can find our own role in the European “Refugee Crisis"

BY AURELIA STR
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

With the onset of a ‘Refugee crisis’ in Europe we are confronted with a narrative that has become too emotional and polarised to understand its core message: refugees are people like you and me.

We can hardly imagine how much struggle it must be to leave one's own country and everything that is close to one's heart behind. But it doesn’t take much for us to open our arms and make someone feel welcome, says Aurelia Streit.

She believes that we can change the current narrative towards refugees in Europe by establishing local platforms for intercultural exchange.

Cultural and Social Sustainability

BY DAN STEIN
@ VOL 15 ON NOV 30, 2017

When we hear about sustainability, we often think of energy, waste, transport, themes focused on economy and environment, . 
We are living in a world with more and more migration. A world becoming more interconnected and global. Does anyone really desire living in a place with walled off communities? We need to be paying more attention to creating communities that are culturally and socially sustainable. Can we make our diversity a community resource that builds strength and resilience, rather than fear?
