The goal behind the project Refugee Roads is two-fold:
- Personal aspect – learning about a global challenge embedded in our interests and field of study through an ‘on-the-ground’ experience in order to gain a strong and educational base of understanding.
- Public impact – sharing our impressions with others in an authentic manner to pass on and multiply the informative effect of our trip to the public. Our goal is not to change the world in its entirety 😉 We want to make a positive contribution to a topic we care about. Thus, our minimum aims are to hold an educational evening for our fellow students at Leiden University, continuous public outreach via our blog and the production of a documentary.
