From dance parties to food festivals and urban hikes, millions of people around the world are taking part in events to celebrate World Refugee Day at a time when the number of children, women and men uprooted by wars and persecution has broken all records.

The event, held on 20 June each year, honours the courage and determination of those who have been forced to flee their homes.

This year, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency is asking people from all walks of life to join the #StepWIthRefugees global challenge in solidarity with refugees who each year trek 1 billion miles to reach the nearest point of safety.
