Youth 4 Change – Autonómia

Youth 4 Change

Our programme aims to strengthen local youth communities and encourage cooperation between Roma and non-Roma young people. The project will run inclusive development programmes in six cities in Hungary and Romania, involving Roma and non-Roma young people aged 14-20 living in segregated settlements and other parts of the municipalities. The young people will produce creative artistic content, which will be filmed in an information and awareness-raising campaign and promoted in the media with the help of influencers.

The methods used and the results are continuously reported and communicated to local, national and international decision-makers and the wider public. We produce methodological guidelines for use in educational institutions on how to shape interethnic attitudes among young people and how to use creative artistic tools to combat hate speech and discrimination. In addition to online dissemination, these materials and methods will also be disseminated through training sessions for teachers and youth workers.

The project will run between March 2023 and March 2025 in Budapest, Gyöngyös and Miskolc, Hungary.

The video and the music were produced by young people from Miskolc participating in the Youth 4 Change project.

The group from Gyöngyös is creating texts and stories.
