As digitalisation continues to transform societies, many Roma communities are left behind and excluded, unable to thrive in an increasingly digital world. This event seeks to shed light on the challenges and opportunities faced by Roma minorities and to explore actionable solutions for fostering digital inclusion. Join us live or online for a roundtable focusing on the pressing issue of digital inequality affecting Roma adults across Europe.

The event is organised by the Digital Inclusion for Roma Adults: Gaining Knowledge and Skills in eServices project which intends to achieve inclusive societies in which Roma adults enjoy equal rights and access to services and knowledge. The project’s main objective is to improve the socio-economic state of Roma adults through IT education and the development of digital skills. The project brings together Roma NGOs and organisations from four countries: North Macedonia, Serbia, Italy, and Finland. The project is financed by the Erasmus+ program.
