About TernYpe

ternYpe - International Roma Youth Network was founded in January 2010 and unites different Roma youth organizations from Albania, Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Slovakia, Spain and Poland.

We are a network of youth and youth associations, which creates space for young people to become active citizens through empowerment, mobilisation, self-organisation and participation. We believe in the common efforts by creating trust, and mutual respect between Roma and non-Roma youth.


DIKH HE NA BISTER - Roma Genocide Remembrance Initiative

ternYpe International Roma Youth Network and its partners have been committed to advocate for this recognition for many years, mobilizing thousands of Roma and non-Roma youth for this cause, developing co-operation with experts, historians, educational institutions and political stakeholders.   We believe that youth plays a vital role in the process of constructing tolerant and inclusive societies, based on deep understanding of the past. That is why we developed the Roma Genocide Remembrance Initiative, to build mutual trust, co-operation and solidarity among Roma and non-Roma youth, through analysis and interpretation of history as a tool, to evaluate and act in contemporary societies. Every year since 2010, around August 2 ternYpe and its partners bring together young Europeans of different backgrounds for the Roma Genocide Remembrance Initiative. In 2014, ternYpe and its over 60 partner organizations gathered 1.000 young Roma and non-Roma from all over Europe around August 2, marking the 70th anniversary of the Remembrance Day of the Roma Genocide. www.2august.eu
