Accessibility: Building Education Towards a Sustainable World
What do we do?
We give voice to young people to reflect on current educational issues and design practical actions to address them. This event will also be an opportunity for them to create local and global connections with people who are interested in pursuing innovative solutions.
Two years ago, Burning Questions 2019 was successfully launched and gave participants the opportunity to question their educational assumptions. An event that dared to challenge our most fundamental perceived truths about education.
The aim of BQ has always been to maximize the freedom for critical discussion, learning from each other, and the exchange of ideas and questions.

Challenging the Structures of Accessibility for Refugees
In this workshop, we seek to challenge participants’ understanding of what it means to be a refugee. Firstly, we would like to clarify the difference between refugees, immigrants and asylum seekers.Then, we hope to hear everyone’s ideas on how to make structures more accessible to refugees. There will be a discussion based on exchanging ideas and sharing inspiration. We hope to leave participants with a deeper understanding of the issue as well as a call to action in their community. We need to realize that there is a global movement of refugees, but we also need a global movement for them.
