What is the Global
Solidarity Walk?

Caritas is calling on communities around the world to walk side by side with migrants and refugees as part of Share the Journey’s Global Solidarity Walk. By walking together, we learn more about each other, build friendships and also send a strong message of unity to political leaders.

Together we aim to walk 1 million kilometres. Each step we take around the world is a step towards building stronger communities and opening our minds and hearts towards a common future.
