Generation of Change with exclamation mark!

Generation of Change with exclamation mark!
Under the topic “Generation of Change? – How to achieve equal opportunities for young Roma, starting now!” the ERGO Network brought together decision makers from the European level and Roma (youth) activists and organizations on the last day of their Annual Platform Meeting in Brussels. The panel discussion in the morning highlighted the challenges, but also recognized the achievements and activities done by young Roma, so that Karolina Mirga concluded that the question mark should be changed into an exclamation mark. The ‘Knowledge Fair’ also invited Phiren Amenca to share the potential of volunteering and voluntary service to challenge stereotypes and racism, as well as create opportunities for the transition of young Roma and non-Roma to autonomy and employment. There was also plenty of time to network and exchange and we have made interesting contacts with organizations we will invite to our next Networking Meeting in March 2016.
