The port city of Gdansk once led the fight for freedom from Communism in Poland. Now it is showing a new kind of solidarity – with migrants and refugees.
(02 May 2019) - The Gdansk Model is a comprehensive programme to help refugees and migrants integrate.
The idea is that individuals and institutions in all spheres, from education and culture to labour and health, should actively include refugees.
An advisory council, with 13 migrant representatives, including two refugees, keeps the Mayor abreast of refugee concerns. (UNHCR)
