What is TOGETHER?

TOGETHER is a global initiative that promotes respect, safety and dignity for everyone forced to flee their homes in search of a better life.

TOGETHER brings together the organizations of the United Nations System, the 193 member countries of the United Nations, the private sector, civil society, academic institutions and individual citizens in a global partnership in support of diversity, non-discrimination and acceptance of refugees and migrants.

The campaign was initiated during the UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants on September 19th 2016.

What does TOGETHER do?

TOGETHER engages and mobilizes global citizens to show support for refugees and migrants.

TOGETHER speaks to communities hosting refugees and migrants as well as people concerned that refugees and migrants may bring physical and economic insecurity to their lives.

TOGETHER creates a strong, persuasive narrative of solidarity toward refugees and migrants and showcases the shared benefits of migration to economies and nations, while also acknowledging legitimate concerns of host communities.

TOGETHER provides a platform for stories of and by refugees and migrants and host communities that have benefitted from welcoming them. TOGETHER tells stories of children on the move.

TOGETHER helps host communities and refugees and migrants to know each other better.

How will TOGETHER do this?

In partnership with the United Nations, its member countries, civil society, the private sector and academic institutions.

Together.un.org will be the interactive hub to learn how to joining the initiative and to find out more about the issues and about what others are doing.

Action takes place at community level. TOGETHER operates at community level, in partnership and in a decentralized manner.

#JoinTogether to celebrate the International Day of Peace in your community!
