ChangeMakers: Exploring the refugee crisis and the movement of people

The world is currently experiencing the largest refugee crisis on record. Stories about refugees, asylum seekers and migrants appear in the news on a daily basis. Why are people moving? What impact does this have on the world?

ChangeMakers is a global citizenship project which gives learners the opportunity to learn and think critically about these issues, before planning and taking appropriate action to create positive change.
