Local solidarity on an unprecedented scale!

Local-level solidarity continues to grow across Europe. To step up national efforts, over a thousand European municipalities have declared themselves ready to welcome asylum-seekers and refugees.

Let's show that Europe can welcome all in need of protection!

The warm welcome to people fleeing Ukraine is Europe at its best. We call to extend this humane approach to offer safety to all people equally.

YOU can drive change!

Each new city added to our map helps us build pressure and advocate for municipalities to be involved in EU decision-making on asylum.
You can place your hometown on the Welcome Map. Reach out to the mayor, your local MP or councillor and tell us about it.

EU welcome culture is very much alive!

Hundreds of European municipalities are ready to show solidarity and welcome refugees.
