Event description
Join us for discussions and recommendations for inclusion of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller history and culture across the national curriculum

About this Event

On 1st July 2020, the Council of Europe's Committee of Ministers adopted a Recommendation for the first time calling on its 47 member states to include the history of Roma and/or Travellers in school curricula and teaching materials.

Friends, Families and Travellers are inviting education professionals, equality organisations, politicians and people from Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities to share good practice and ideas to drive change.

Join our webinar to hear discussions on how the inclusion of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller histories and cultures, and education about the Holocaust, can be an effective tool to combat hatred, discrimination and prejudice in society.

This event, falling the day after Holocaust Memorial Day (27th January) will be hosted by Baroness Janet Whitaker.

Speakers will include:

A speaker from the Anti-Bullying Alliance

Chelsea McDonagh, Education Policy Officer at The Traveller Movement
