The Council of Europe will mark International Roma Day (8 April) with 35 Roma young people and youth workers to discuss the consequences of “intersectional discrimination” on Roma girls and women, young people, Roma LGBTI+ people and Roma migrants.
The seminar entitled “Roma Youth Together” is co-organised with Roma-led youth organisations, including the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC), TernYpe, the European Roma Grassroots Organisations (ERGO) Network and Phiren Amenca.
On 6 April it will feature a flower casting ceremony at 12.30 pm in which Deputy Secretary General Bjørn Berge as well as the Mayors of the City of Strasbourg and Schiltigheim will participate.
