Bridging Worlds

Reaching out to Young Refugees with Books and Stories


The very first IBBY European Regional Conference Bridging Worlds. Reaching Out to Young Refugees With Books and Stories took place in Bologna on Thursday, 6 April 2017.

The programme included an overview of the current situation worldwide, and there were three panels looking at issues related to libraries, to books and to the IBBY Silent Books collection. There were opportunities for the IBBY Europe National Sections to share activities and learn from each other. We also aim to develop a section on the current IBBY Europe website for sharing information, resources and looking at future activities.
