Refugee lessons for Glastonbury

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is to use this month’s Glastonbury music festival as an opportunity to demonstrate how it feels to be a refugee and raise awareness of its efforts to reach out to the temporarily displaced.

During the festival, the agency plans to hold educational workshops for children on how refugees live and will distribute branded beach balls across the fields to grab the attention of young adults.

The UNHCR is publicising its activities to local Glastonbury media, along with education and main news sections of national newspapers plus education, music and charity press.
