Help! What can we do?
16 February 2017 18.00
The refugee crisis is not over – it is just going on somewhere else. On the Greek island of Lesvos, thousands of refugees are living in camps. They depend on voluntary workers. One of them is Efi Latsoudi. She is coming to the Nobel Peace Center Thursday 16 February to tell about her project in the Pikpa refugee camp. But how much can one single person or a private organisation do? Why don’t the bigger NGO’s and the authorities do more to help?
In the panel:
- Trude Jacobsen, A Drop in the Ocean
- Sven Mollekleiv, Red Cross Norway
- Efi Latsoudi, Lesvos Solidarity
- Moderator: Liv Tørres, Nobel Peace Center
Norwegian photographer Knut Bry recently visited the Moria refugee camp, where 4000 people are living in tents and containers without heating. We show some of his photos in a pop-up exhibition which will be on display before the event. Knut Bry will also be present to talk about his project.
The programme will be in English. Please sign up on Facebook!
The event is a cooperation between the Nobel Peace Center and the University of Agder. It is free and open for all. Welcome!
