During the project lifetime various activities are carried out to provide effective dissemination and promotion. Each partner organizes at least 3 media events in each country at interesting occasions and sends press releases to general and specific Roma mass media to attract media attention.
Current updates (publications, news, various notices) will be available on the developed project website for which a new project domain will be obtained. Some project information and link to the project website will be available also on the project partner’s websites.
