A refuge for thousands
Since the turn of the millennium, thousands of refugees on their way to England have gathered in Calais, in the famous refugee camp "The Jungle", which burned down in 2016. Even though the jungle does not exist anymore, there are still hundreds of refugees in and around Calais living under miserable conditions. In some places, Calais has become the image of the humanitarian challenges facing refugees in Europe.
On the study trip, we will meet with organisers and activists in the organisations that help refugees get food and clothes – and also participate actively in this work.
