About this event

MiFriendly Cities - 'Share our journey' online event

A migration-friendly city is one where the voices, skills and passion of refugees and migrants flourish, so that all branches of the community are fully invested in its future, and the social and economic fabric of the region is strengthened.

After three years running MiFriendly Cities, it’s now time to share our learning and insights more widely.

Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton City Councils, 8 other project partners and our project participants look forward to hosting you in March. In the meantime, if you have any queries, please email mifriendlycities@coventry.gov.uk

On the day you will be able to:

  • Hear live from public bodies and our participants
  • Get exclusive access to content and resources sharing our activities and impact
  • Watch our brand new film about the project and visit our new online exhibition
  • Attend 2 workshops to ask questions and gain deeper insights on topics you are most interested in
