Open To Syria

Syria's conflict has created the biggest humanitarian crisis of our time. 3.8 million refugees are sheltering in just five countries. By contrast, the world's richer countries have welcomed a tiny fraction of Syria's refugees. Join our call to ask these governments to #OpenToSyria.


  1. Using any kind of creative expression, tell the world why you think richer countries should be #OpenToSyria and help create a better future for some of the world's most vulnerable refugees. Film or photograph your art and email it to - we'll feature the best entries in a video targeting world leaders on 20 June – World Refugee Day.
