- Integrated Urban Development
Despite efforts at local, national and European levels Roma populations continue to face high levels of social exclusion and poverty. Partners of the project believe that integration of Roma populations is a key factor in a cohesive society, as well as in delivering the goals of the Lisbon Strategy.
The Roma-Net partners have a united desire to share expertise and to spread good practices in the hope that it will improve local policy development and deliver capabilities for stronger community cohesion between Roma and their neighbouring communities accross the whole citiy.
An overarching objective of our partnership of nine European cities is to inform and support our City partners to develop local action plans that facilitate better services, through improved access and integrated approach, to support the social inclusion of young Roma and their transition into active adult citizens.
Change comes from step-by-step inclusive approach. As Roma-Net partners, young adults will motivate positive change and provide insight into the barriers and challenges caused by social exclusion.
