In just one week the #RomaWeek2023 will begin in the European Parliament. Are you ready?

For one week we cover a wide range of topics ranging from Holocaust memory and justice to youth trainings to funding opportunities. This year the Roma Week will also provide the space for a historical moment: the replica of Sigismund of Luxembourg Roma Decree handover.

Did you know you do not even have to be in Brussels to participate? Many events will be livestreamed, and some will be recorded, so you will be able to follow them at a convenient time.

Check the agenda of the events below and let us know in the comments, which event you find most interesting! In these coming days before the Roma Week 2023 we will be highlighting the events, so you can learn more about them, and we will start with the ones you are most excited about.
