In Warsaw and Krakow, UNHCR will organise outdoor music concerts as well as fairs presenting refugees' and NGOs' activities.

Exhibitions, a panel discussion and a poster and leaflet campaign will be held in Warsaw, Krakow and Poznan. In Warsaw, an exhibition about African children will be held, displaying refugee children drawings and explaining how young people can contribute to helping refugees in Poland.

As part of an educational campaign, workshops and lessons about refugees will be held in public schools in Krakow, Poznan and Warsaw.

In Torun, music concerts will be organised in clubs. In Krakow, a refugee fashion show will take place in a commercial trade centre to sensitize the public to refugee issues in Poland.

Several films on refugee issues will tour Poland in July. In various cities, refugees' "success stories" will be presented in order to show how they can contribute to Polish society.

UNHCR will organise a football tournament between refugees and Polish artists. A collection of fairy tales told and illustrated by refugee children will be published, linked with the already existing popular campaign, "Poles! Read to children".
