Today, more than a million refugees live in Europe, but their voices are still not represented. They don’t have the right to vote or stand up in an election. Leaving them trapped in a chain of challenges where they don’t have the means to tackle them. We need to go beyond the idea that democracy is just casting a ballot. That’s why newcomers took an initiative for a G-100, based on the G-1000 ‘Burgertop’, to speak up. The most important issues by the G-100 are presented by the New Voices for Europe Council*. How do they deal with education, housing and work in the European communities they now live in? And how can they transform their voices into practical recommendations to influence integration policies of cities, states, and the EU – now and in the future?

 

In collaboration with Syrian Volunteers in the Netherlands (SYVNL) The G100 conference took place in Amsterdam on January 18, 2018, at the Pakhuis de Zwijger. In preparation for the G100 conference in Amsterdam, we’ve created a survey that will allow you to raise your voice and be heard. We want to hear about your housing situation, your job situation, how you stay in touch with your family and friends, etc.

The survey will take approximately 5 minutes to fill out.
