Just Be a buddy (Vær litt Kompis)

Lets think about how better we feel when we get warm welcome from people in a new work place, new school, new culture or new neighborhood. And think about situation that you have been fleeing from place to place with unlimited uncertainty and risk for life in your home country and outside. And then, you get to a place where you see a chance of getting your normal life back and you are so eager to thrive in this new environment though everything is new and different.

This year the Norwegian Red Cross Youth has developed a vision for more inclusive Norway through the campaign called 'Be a Little Buddy'. Also keeping in account a big number of young people who have moved to Norway alone. The campaign is about ensuring that people have a friendly attitude towards refugees but the goal is to achieve an inclusive society for all.

Everyone has immense possiblity to be a little buddy, greet, invite new neighbors for a cup of coffee, or the new classmate with the football.

Bowling and football buddies

Also we feel this campaign would be as a pulling string for higher concerns regarding the international refugee situation. The hidden fact that this situation being a harsh history for tomorrow, with the weight of not less than the second world war human crisis.
