SALTO Cultural Diversity Newsletter December 2013

Dear SALTO Readers,

As we start wrapping up for the holidays, SALTO Cultural Diversity would like to wish you all a very warm and merry Festive Season! Over the break, you may be interested in browsing over the following:

Roma Youth Action Plan 2014

◎ SALTO Cultural Diversity have recently attended the Council of Europe’s Roma Youth Action Plan meeting in Strasbourg – which focused on some exciting plans for 2014. The Roma Youth Action Plan (RYAP) supports Roma youth participation and countering the effects of discrimination on young Roma. More information on the RYAP can be found here.


◎ Erasmus+, the new European Commission programme for education, training, youth and sport, will start from 1 January 2014. For more information on Erasmus+, please click here. Links to the Call for Proposals and the Programme Guide can be found here.

Other Cultural Diversity Items

Here is a fantastic diversity calendar with some inspiring quotes and interfaith festival days for 2014. Enjoy!  

◎ To what degree does our appearance determine our life? A video about stereotypes can be found here.

◎ The European Interfaith Youth Network have developed a really interesting toolkit for religious communities to end violence against women. For more information, click here.

Here’s a thought provoking report by the European Network Against Racism (ENAR) which highlights discrimination faced by people of African descent and black Europeans.

◎ The Council of Europe and European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) 2012 report can be downloaded here.

We are very much looking forward to sharing more cultural diversity news with you in 2014. See you in the New Year!
