Activity Synopsis (ID# 12814) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) To encourage initiatives from NGOs and schools, aiming at improving the integration of Roma, as well as at promoting mutual understanding and interculturale dialogue through a more extensive knwoledge of Roma culture. 
Output/Results Many schools from the participating countries initiated activities in view of their participation to this award. Therefore the award met its main objective, i.e. to work as an incentive for initiating innovative practices. All the schools which won the prizes worked using the methods of workshops, festivals and debates targeting students and parents.

With regards to the NGO, the projects which won were started in 2007 but not necessary as a consequence of the publication of the award's announcement. However, the award allow their efforts to be recognised and spread as examples of good practices through the campaign website. 
Conclusions/Follow Up Prize giving ceremonies were organised for rewarding the winning schools: Council of Europe representatives visited the schools, delivered the diplomas and some campaign's promotional material. The visit of the Council of Europe civil servants was considered as an incentive to continue the work started as well as a proof of the attention that the partners organisations pay to local intiatives. 
Participants Schools from the five participating countries; NGOs implementing projects in the five participating countries
