Transformative approaches to forced migration

Being forced to leave their homes because of war, poverty or disaster causes unprecedented vulnerability and disruption in peoples' lives. Forced migration presents a major challenge to achieving the SDGs for everyone. This journey allowed participants to learn from the UN Refugee Agency about how they are innovating to address forced migration. They also explored how to transform the experience of forced migration through an interactive activity with Cuisine Lab, our caterers for the day.
