Doroob’s global campaign honors refugees and invites people to share how to give or seek refuge.


In honor of the United Nations World Refuge Day, Doroob collaborated with Six Seconds to launch the global campaign, Seeking Refuge.

In the light of geopolitical tensions, Doroob’s campaign highlights the giving and seeking of refuge as a shared human experience. Doroob’s campaign objective was to empower the youth and Doroob Ambassadors, and to raise awareness about emotional intelligence.

Stage One

The Chalkboard Conversation provided a platform for the public to practice emotional intelligence. Chalkboards were set up in various campaigns and organizations and people were invited to give their perspective and to reflect on the various ways they seek or provide refuge. The heartfelt responses showed the emotional intimacy of caring for another human being.
