“It is not too Late” Awareness Raising Campaign officially ended. It was carried out in the framework of PAL project with the aim of raising awareness among relevant stakeholders and public opinion concerning the benefits and popularization of education and the need to assure access to education and to fight discrimination and anti-Gypsysm.

***
The campaign lasted seven months, from November 2016 to May 2017. The heart of the campaign has been the “It’s not too late” conference of exchange of best practices, held in Praha in January 2017.

During the conference 188 participants coming from more than 9 EU countries (Czech Republic, Italy, Spain, Greece, France, Slovenia, Hungary, Romania, Belgium etc.) met and shared experiences and best practices about inclusion of Roma people within the educational system collected in their countries. The contents of  “It’s not too late” campaign have been also in Turkey, Albania and Croatia.

Twenty local events across Europe were organized and/or attended by PAL partners: public events; presentation of reports, books and films; roundtables; meetings with private and public actors and stakeholders. “It is not too Late” campaign was addressed both to Roma youngsters, with the aim of raising awareness about the benefits of education, and to non Roma people, in order to let them understand the need to assure a full inclusion in school service to Roma families as a tool for overcoming reciprocal distrust.

More than 2000 people (experts, trainers, social workers, cultural mediators, NGOs, politicians, researchers, etc.) have been directly and indirectly impacted by “It is not too Late” campaign. Best practices collected in each country have been analysed and shared. PAL project partners collected a number of best practices and they had the opportunity to analyse and compare different levels of Roma integration in each local context, relating to specific features of each country.

Different stories have been disseminated: projects carried out by Roma associations in theatre and music (Italy), daily centres in Roma settlements (Slovenia), public campaigns to explain the importance of education among Roma families (Romania), educational approaches for cooperative teaching (Hungary) as well as success stories of individuals (Greece).

Whilst taking into account the differences of each local context, “It is not too Late” campaign highlighted a common urgency to promote the issue of integration of Roma children and families in the educational system. Need of working directly with young people emerged, as well as the important role played by the European Union, that is the heart of process of inclusion of Roma people in the mainstream educational system, by overcoming the delays of national governments in the implementation of active inclusion policies.
