On Sunday night, Action from Switzerland had the opportunity to participate alongside 23 other organizations at the aktiv sii event at Amboss Rampe in Zurich. The theme for the well-attended evening was: How can I be active in refugee integration/support in Zurich?
The program opened with an informative presentation by Hanna Gerig, Managing Director of Solinetz, on the current situation of asylum-seekers in Switzerland and specifically in the canton of Zurich. An inspiring panel discussion followed the speech and then attendees moved throughout the venue to visit with representatives of the 24 organizations at individual tables. An ongoing poetry slam, Syrian food, and music created a stimulating and enriching atmosphere.
AfS would like to thank everyone involved in the organization of this lively event. Aktiv sii provided a great platform for inspiring and motivating conversations that will hopefully lead to greater involvement for the support of refugees in Canton Zurich.
