HUBweek 2018: Creating Resilient Communities Through War and Disaster


Join HUBweek's Media Stage for a presentation looking at growing human migration and displacement due to violence, famine, and persecution, and in anticipation of the foreseeable migration of climate refugees, globally and nationally. Our aim is to make visible the voices, movements and activities of those living in at risk neighborhoods, temporary encampments, or other impermanent “permanent” shelters due to these factors in Boston, Haiti, Lebanon, and more. According to the UNHCR, the average stay of refugees in temporary encampments is now 27 years.
