World Refugee Day 2003: Austria

World Refugee Day 2003: Austria

20 June 2003

Over 600 people enjoyed the concert at the Moscow Club of Scientists that brought together Russian and refugee musicians.

To actively raise awareness of refugee issues among young Austrians, UNHCR arranged for sportspeople who are refugees or former refugees to visit high schools, where they gave sports demonstrations and shared their refugee experiences.

The refugee agency also worked to co-ordinate refugee-related work among NGOs.
