News / YEAs participate in ‘So Keres Europa?!’ forum in Tirana, Albania
‘So Keres Europa?!’ (in the Roma language, What’s up, Europe?!) is an international week-long social forum, part of the activities under Tirana European Youth capital, which welcomed over 150 young people, including Young European Ambassadors (YEAs), from all over the EU, the Western Balkans and Turkey, to attend a series of workshops. The participants included Roma and non-Roma, who took part in workshops focused on the topics of human and minority rights in Europe, intersectionality, arts and culture, advocacy for youth issues and Roma resistance, in Tirana from 11-17 July.
After a full week of workshops, the forum culminated with a public event – The International Roma Youth Festival – where the groups presented the results of their work and representatives of the European Youth Capital, government representatives and national politicians had a chance with those from across Europe to take a stand for the diversity and inclusion of all young people.
The event was hosted by Roma Active Albania and Tirana Youth Capital and the forum was co-funded by the EU, Erasmus+ and Tirana European Youth Capital 2022.
