3rd International Youth Conference on Antigypsism
October 10, 2016 /// 00:00 – October 16, 2016 /// 00:00
Based on various experiences and projects from 2012, antigypsyism appeared as increasingly relevant topic in the youth work of Phiren Amenca, especially regarding educational approaches and youth activism.Romano Centro organized the first International Roma Youth Conference on Antigypsyism which was held in Vienna, Austria, between November 10-16, 2014. The conference was organized by Phiren Amenca’s member organization, Romano Centro, and its partner organizations. As it was a very successful and efficient event, our network decided to continue the conference and organize it every year, involving the members and volunteers of the Phiren Amenca Network. In 2015 FAGIC took an important role in this development and took the responsibility to coordinate and host the conference in Barcelona with a support of its member organizations. This year our Czech member organization will host the conference, in order to give an opportunity for participants to learn more about the situation of Roma in Czech Republic. This project will bring together 50 Roma and non-Roma youth leaders, multipliers, trainers and activists from six different countries during a 5 day lasting youth exchange in Ostrava.
