News / Youth from Albania and North Macedonia break down prejudices
The Institute of Romani Culture in Albania and the ROMALITICO Institute for Research and Policy analysis from North Macedonia have organised a summer camp within the Promoting Intercultural Understanding, Reconciliation and Acceptance EU-funded project managed by RYCO.
The summer camp brought together 30 Roma and non-Roma young people from Albania and North Macedonia who were able to gain deeper understanding of diversity and acceptance, design small-scale projects on intercultural dialogue, tackle issues of prejudice and discrimination, and strengthen their cooperation in working with vulnerable and marginalised youth. The young participants were also provided with the opportunity of getting to know new cultures, people and perspectives.
During the summer camp, the participants exchanged experiences and knowledge on topics of identity, culture and acceptance, and worked together on designing new initiatives and ideas that they will soon implement in their communities. At the end of the camp, the participants discussed their project ideas for addressing Roma-related challenges and explored ways of putting these initiatives into action.
