"4Children-by-Children”: A child-friendly campaign to overcome prejudice about Roma
Often, children know best when it comes to influencing and developing their peers’ attitudes.
The “4Children-by-Children” initiative has produced child-friendly materials, as part of the Council of Europe’s “DOSTA!” campaign to end prejudice and challenge stereotypes about Roma. They were developed through a child consultation process, involving 70 children between the ages of 12 and 15 from Albania, Hungary and Spain, who took part in specially designed “think tank” activities.
Three videos and a child-friendly webpage tackle some of the biggest stereotypes around Roma, and call on children to speak out against discrimination and anti-Gypsyism. Materials are available in 6 languages (Bulgarian, Croatian, English, French, Hungarian, Spanish).
During the month of International Roma Day (8 April) this child-friendly campaign makes a timely call: open your mind, go beyond prejudice!
